All I have to say about this dish is one word….FLAVOR!!

I’ve actually had this spicy chickpea quinoa bowl recipe on the blog for a few years now, but I wanted to share some fresh new photos and show just how EASY these are to meal prep. This is literally one of my favorite go-to recipes and is perfect for weekly lunches because not only can you whip this up in 20 minutes, but it’s a great healthy option too! I seriously can’t stress enough the amount of flavor in these chickpeas…sautéed onion and garlic mixed with tomatoes, cumin and red pepper flakes all simmered together and topped with fresh cilantro. Let’s just say you definitely won’t mind the smell coming from your kitchen ?

Are you hungry yet??

I like to serve the chickpeas over some cooked quinoa then just top with extra cilantro. Mmmm so good. I love cooking the quinoa in veggie or chicken broth because it really adds so much extra flavor, but if you don’t have any broth on hand you could of course just use water.

This recipe is great for meal prep because although it’s a meatless dish, it is extremely filling! The whole meal comes together really quickly because while the quinoa is cooking on the stove you can easily simmer the chickpeas. They’ll both be done in roughly the same amount (only 15 to 20 minutes!) and yup that’s it! If you’re not a fan of quinoa, feel free to use brown rice or throw the chickpeas over a salad which is another way I love to eat this ? You really can’t go wrong.
