This easy chickpea vegetable rice bowl is ready in 45 minutes for an easy weeknight dinner. The dish is loaded with veggies, my Chipotle inspired cilantro lime rice, and cashew dijon dressing for some more flavor.  


  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 recipe cilantro lime brown rice
  • 1 recipe cashew dijon dressing (recipe calls for soaked cashews)
  • 1/4 bunch fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 5 cups kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, or your favorite fresh greens chopped
  • 4 cups fresh vegetables (chopped cauliflower, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, or cucumber)


  1. Make the recipe for cilantro lime brown rice.
  2. Meanwhile make the cashew dijon dressing and chop all the vegetables.
  3. To assemble the bowls place the desired amount of rice, chickpeas, greens, and other vegetables in each bowl.
  4. Top it off with chopped fresh cilantro and cashew dijon dressing.
