These Chickpea Fajita Meal Prep Bowls are packed with tons of vegetables and protein and are perfect for a healthy and filling vegan meal prep lunch!
So, I had planned on posting this recipe as part of my meal prep/30 minute dinner January, but then baby Sawyer came early and I’ve been mostly spending my days laying on the couch, nursing a newborn and watching tv 🙂
I’m finally getting my energy back though and thinking I need to carve out some time to do some lunch meal prep because I’ve been surviving mostly on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches these days.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually love peanut butter and jelly, but in these postpartum days it’s really important to nourish yourself with warm, hearty meals. I made these Chickpea Fajita Meal Prep Bowls quite a while ago and they’ve become one of my favorite meal prep recipes.
Quinoa and chickpeas are regular ingredients around here and I love when I can make a fun, flavorful pesto to go onto of my bowls. This Cilantro Lime pesto is one of my favorites! I used it first in this meal prep recipe and it’s such a great topping that’s packed with tons spinach and cilantro! I love when I can add a fresh green sauce to my meals.
Roasted chickpeas are an ingredient I’ve been loving lately. I put them into a lot of my bowls and my 2 year old really enjoyed them too. One of these days I’m planning to get a post out with a few different flavors of roasted chickpeas, so I hope you guys like them too! They add such a perfect texture to any recipe and are great with so many different flavors.
Recipe Tips for Chickpea Fajita Meal Prep Bowls with Cilantro Lime Pesto:
- If you don’t have a huge sheet pan, like the size of your oven, then you may want to roast the peppers and chickpeas in two batches. It’s a lot of food and may take longer to roast if it doesn’t have much room to spread out on the tray.
- Feel free to add any other roasted veggies you like.
- You can sub the quinoa for any other grain you like, or cauliflower rice.
