Chickpea, Quinoa & Veggies in a Lemon Ginger Sauce


I’ve started cooking daily meals for Jim’s chiropractor, who is too busy to eat and cook healthy for himself but is desperate to get nutritious food in his system.  We worked out a deal, and I prepare vegan dishes every day for him.  Seems simple enough- except he can’t eat onions, garlic OR peppers and those are a main staple in almost EVERYTHING Jim and I cook.  It hasn’t been as easy as I though, but he is VERY pleased with the simple lunches and dinners I’ve come up with.  This easy quinoa and chickpea dish is a little too boring for me, but it is SUPER healthy and really does taste good!

2 cups cooked quinoa

2 cup cooked chickpeas

2 cups broccoli florets, steamed

1 cup shredded zucchini

1 cup diced carrots, steamed

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette

1 tsp grated ginger

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

  • Combine all ingredients and toss together-that’s it!
