Chickpea Buddha Bowls

  • ¾ cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 large carrots (peeled & chopped)
  • 1 red onion (chopped into 1 inch pieces)
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts ( outer leaves removed and cut in half)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 19 oz can of chickpeas (drained; 15 or 19 oz can)

Tahini Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • salt


  • Cook quinoa according to package directions. Portion out into four 2-cup capacity storage containers and allow to cool.
  • Heat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • Toss carrots, onion, brussels sprouts in olive oil and season with salt & pepper. 
  • Spread out on the baking sheet and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through, or until veggies are soft.
  • While veggies are baking, shake together all tahini dressing ingredients. 
  • Between the four meal prep containers, portion out the chickpeas, veggies, and tahini sauce (you can drizzle right away or add it to a condiment container to add fresh).


  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat until steaming hot, or enjoy cold.
