High-Protein Sabich Bowl

4 servings Prep time: 30 min Cook time: 45 min

This satisfying High-Protein Sabich Bowl packs in 30 grams of protein per serving. It’s got tender roasted eggplant and chickpeas, sumac marinated onions, and a delicious lemon garlic tahini sauce served with soft-boiled eggs and a simple tomato-cucumber salad. 

Eggplant packs a real nutritional punch, with copper, manganese, vitamin B1, and vitamin B6, in addition to antioxidants like nasunin, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Eating it with the skin on gives you more of these full-body benefits. 

The combination of eggs and chickpeas offer a robust amount of protein, and the chickpeas also add more fiber to this dish as well as a high amount of folate for optimal cell function.

I love how hearty this bowl feels without leaving me feeling heavy. I hope you love it, too!

Wishing you health and happiness,

Meat is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet—but high-quality meat that’s 100% grass-fed, organic, and humanely raised hasn’t always been accessible. That’s why I use ButcherBox. I know what I’m getting is going to have more anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats, fewer inflammatory omega-6 fats, and contain more protective phytochemicals than conventionally raised meat because it’s been raised with better feed and better soil. And I also know that meat just tastes better when it comes from traditional farms that rely on real food and real pasture, as we see in the Blue Zones. But don’t just take my word for it. Right now, ButcherBox is offering $20 off your first five boxes—plus your choice of two ribeye, NY strip, or filet mignon steaks in every box for a year. Just click here and use code HYMAN.
