Lemony Broccoli Chickpea Quinoa Bowl

photo-9.JPG

This filling meal-in-a-bowl uses simple ingredients that, when paired, are incredibly flavorful, though the photo doesn’t do it justice! You can never go wrong with olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt. I rarely use leeks but loved them in this dish in place of onions, lending a similar flavor and no tears streaming down my face when I sliced them! Swap the broccoli and mushrooms for any veggie you like – we’ve been buying 2-3 packages of mushrooms weekly since the little guy loves them!

Ingredients:

1.5 cups dry quinoa, rinsed and cooked according to package directions

1 head broccoli, chopped finely into tiny pieces

1 package baby bella mushrooms, chopped

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 leak, finely sliced

2 cloves minced garlic

4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

olive oil

Sea salt to taste

In a large skillet, heat olive oil and sautee garlic and leeks for about 3 minutes. Add broccoli and mushrooms, cooking until broccoli has softened about 5 minutes. Add chickpeas and stir to combine.

Add cooked quinoa to the vegetable and quinoa mixture, mixing well to combine. Mix in lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt to taste, adding more lemon juice/oil/salt to your liking. Enjoy room temperature or hot.

    Loving the sound of this! In my old job, we would sometimes get lunch from this lovely little place that new their salads, and my favourite was a quinoa one that used many of the same ingredients as you have done here 😀 Delicious! x
