Ingredients

Marinated Chickpeas

  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained 
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 
  • 1/4 cup olive oil 
  • 1/4 fresh parsley, chopped 
  • 1/2 small lemon, squeezed, 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, diced
  • 1 tsp oregano 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • a pinch of freshly cracked black pepper 

Bowl Toppings

  • 1/2 English cucumber, sliced into half moons
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • homemade or store bought tzatziki sauce
  • garlic herb pita chips
  • fresh lemon
  • white rice

Instructions

  1. Begin by mincing the fresh garlic, slicing a small lemon in half, chopping fresh parsley and dicing the roasted red peppers. Set aside.

  2. Drain the can of chickpeas. Add these to a bowl.

  3. To the bowl, add the fresh garlic, parsley, roasted red peppers and squeeze the 1/2 of a lemon. Mix together. Add the red wine vinegar, olive oil and spices. Mix together. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Set this bowl in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes to let the chickpeas marinate.

  4. Next, if you'd like, cook some rice according to package directions. While that's going, slice up the bowl toppings you'd like. I did cucumber, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, and more fresh lemon. Set these aside.

  5. Once everything is done, assemble the bowl! Add a layer of rice, followed by some marinated chickpeas and top with the bowl toppings. Garnish with feta cheese and eat with lots of pita chips. Enjoy!
