Chickpea, Spinach and Corn Good for you Bowl

Last weekend I was building a wardrobe. Yes it was from Ikea so it took about 3 1/2 hours.  During a much needed break after the 3 hour mark I went to the kitchen to make a quick lunch.  Having no energy leave to make anything too complicated, yet wanting something delicious I came up with the below by throwing together a few things that I have hanging out in my fridge.  Surprisingly it turned out pretty tasty.  So I decided to share my food joy with you all!

1 handful of spinach
1/4 cup of frozen corn
1/4 cup of chickpeas
Salsa and vegan sour cream to taste

Place the frozen corn in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 45 seconds or until thawed.  Place spinach, chickpeas, and salsa into bowl and mix. Microwave for 1 minute or until ingredients are hot.  Add vegan sour cream on top and voila and quick and easy tasty lunch or dinner!

This can be just a starting off point for your next quick creation.  I used what I had in my fridge, but this would also be good with any other kind of veggie.  You could also make a tasty Tahiti dressing (see my post Spinach Cucumber Olive Salad for dressing recipe) to go on top instead of salsa and "sour cream".
