“Grilled Veggie Healthy Bowl” is inspired by my daughter-in-law, who enjoys light, fresh, and healthy meals. She suggested I do this video after trying my recipe out. It’s hard to believe something this healthy makes such a delicious and filling meal! In this recipe, I grilled asparagus, broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes. I then toss the grilled veggies with spiced chickpeas and a homemade ginger dressing. The ginger dressing definitely adds a kick to the flavor. This bowl is also pleasing to the eyes as it’s filled with colorful vegetables and the chickpeas add some texture, in addition to protein! This dish vegan and gluten-free. This makes for a great lunch. Or you can serve this as a side dish or make a wrap using tortillas or flatbread.
