Mediterranean Bowls

Garbanzo Beans and Tomatoes:

2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 medium onion, diced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon madras curry powder
salt and pepper to taste

Other ingredients for the bowls:
diced chicken (cooked, obviously)
feta cheese
fresh lemon (or lime) juice

Grain - couscous, quinoa, rice

Here is a quick recipe that I threw together on a busy weeknight before gymnastics class.  It's quick, healthy, and easy.

In a large skillet over medium heat, saute onions until translucent.  Add garlic and seasonings and cook for about a minute.  Add garbanzo beans and tomatoes then lower temperature and simmer until ready to assemble bowls.

Cook couscous (or grain of your choice).  For the bowls, place couscous in first then add the garbanzo bean/tomato mixture. Top with your choice of ingredients.  I used all those listed above but you can easily add other items such as a dollop of hummus or tzatziki sauce, carrots, bell peppers, etc.  Oh, I also added some leftover roasted brussel sprouts to our bowls because they needed to be eaten.
