Rejoice in spring produce with this roasted vegetable quinoa bowl, drizzled with goddess dressing and packed with flavorful green veggies, hearty roasted chickpeas, and crunchy toasted almonds.

Roasted Spring Vegetable and Chickpea Quinoa Bowl

Quinoa bowls are an easy, tasty, and vegetarian friendly way to pack a big protein punch in a meal. I love quinoa because it’s fluffy and light, but also filling, thanks to its high protein content.

Roasted Spring Vegetable Quinoa Bowl

The secret to this roasted veggie bowl is the roasted chickpeas. If you’ve never roasted chickpeas before, let this be your moment – when you roast chickpeas, not only do they get a delicious crunch to the outside, they’re starchy and hearty on the inside, like a potato. You won’t be left unsatisfied after that combo!

Here, I use my go-to pre-made vegan goddess dressing, because I have not yet been able to make a homemade one that tastes just as good (plus, pre-made is convenient!) I love the one by Gotham Greens.

I love the nuttiness from the toasted almonds with the tender vegetables and light arugula. Altogether, this is a must-make quinoa bowl that can certainly be made year-round, but can also be swapped for seasonal vegetables (I can totally see a zucchini and tomato version during the summertime!)
