Roasted Veggie Bowls

This healthy, but filling dinner comes together with minimal effort. The roasted chickpeas become crunchy and add a nice textural difference. Quinoa helps to increase the protein in this veggie dish to 24 grams total.

Substitute other types of veggies or grain to create variety.

Roasted Veg Bowl

1/2 head cauliflower, medium-sized
2 small heads broccoli
15oz can chickpeas (Garbanzo beans)

Mix yogurt, onion, cucumber, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast until combined.

Divide cooked quinoa between 2 bowls. On top, pile half each of cauliflower, broccoli, and chickpeas. Add sauce on top of prepared bowls.
