If you've never had chana masala (AKA chickpeas cooked in a spiced tomato sauce) this is the perfect recipe to start with. (Just beware that you do have to precook the ginger and onions, so it's not a true dump-and-go recipe.) Get the recipe here.

7. Black Bean Chili

This black bean chili only requires eight main ingredients and minimal chopping, so it's perfect for prepping before work. Get the recipe here.
