Bowls are a great healthy lunch option because they combine protein, whole grains, veggies, and a flavorful sauce packed with healthy fats. They can be easily assembled the night before and taken on the go or eaten at home. This bowl features chickpeas, a variety of vegetables, fluffy quinoa, and a tasty ginger-infused sauce.
2 cups roasted veggie blend
1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1⁄2 cup cooked quinoa
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1⁄2 teaspoon maple syrup
1⁄2 teaspoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
In a small bowl, whisk together almond butter, lemon juice, maple syrup, soy sauce, ginger, and water as needed to thin. Add veggies, chickpeas, and quinoa to a bowl and drizzle with the sauce.
