Chickpea Fajita Bowls (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Chickpea Fajita Bowls

 

I love this dinner idea because any veggies will work.  So you can use up leftovers in the fridge.  I served mine over cooked quinoa, but you can eat it plain too.  Serving over brown rice is another option if you want to stretch the meal out more.

If you like a little more heat, you can add a jalapeno at the same time you add the bell peppers.

Veggie Loaded Chickpea Stir Fry

If you are trying to eat more veggies, you should try this Veggie Loaded Chickpea Stir Fry.  It’s super easy and you can really use any veggies you have on hand.  Just like vegetable broth, it’s a great way to use up leftover odds and ends in the fridge.

The chickpeas add protein to make this a complete meal. You could also serve it with rice or quinoa.  Toasted cashews would be a nice option too.

Curry Chickpea Cous Cous

We eat at Whole Foods often, and this new recipe is a copycat version of the Curry Chickpea Cous Cous from the Whole Foods salad bar.  I have several other copycat versions from the whole food salad bar.  Two of my other favorites are the carrot ginger detox salad and the kale apple salad.

I used Israeli cous cous to keep the recipe true to the whole foods version.  I know cous cous is not gluten free, but I really do think buckwheat or quinoa could be used in place of the cous cous if you wanted to keep the recipe gluten free.  However, keep in mind that buckwheat will take longer to cook than the cous cous will.

We ate this cold like a salad, but you can most definitely warm it up if you prefer.  It’s simple to make too.
