If you’re looking for simple, quick, easy and healthy meals, Chickpea Grain Bowls are a top pick. Easily assembled and customized to everyone’s taste.

There are no hard and fast rules with grain bowls. Or grain bowl recipes either. They’re simply a collection of the freshest, healthiest, most favorite, colorful food you can find. This happens to be a collection of some of my favorites.

Grain bowls or buddha bowls have been uber popular for years now. With good reason. They’re simple, approachable, and incredibly pretty. In fact, experts say the aesthetic is one of its most important features. Along with balance of flavor, color, protein, and carb.

I like to change ours up according to the season and what looks deliciously fresh at our markets that week.

But in full disclosure, I have two guys in my family… a husband and a son, a college athlete, who love to eat healthy, but have a difficult time filling up. While the grain bowl is perfect for me, I most often will add additional protein for them. Whether that be a grilled and sliced chicken breast, pork chop or fish. It keeps everyone happy. And that’s a very good thing.

Change up the grain according to preference. Great choices are brown rice, farro, quinoa, or even lentils.

A quick note on chickpeas. Keeping everything simple, this recipe calls for canned chickpeas, but if you have roasted chickpeas on hand, they are incredible here. A favorite is Curry Roasted Chickpeas.

There’s something special about bowl food. And Chickpea Grain Bowls just make me happy! I hope it does you too.
