Crispy Spiced Chickpeas with Summer Veggies + Lemon Vinaigrette

crispy spiced chickpeas with summer veggies
This vegetarian sheet-pan dinner uses summer veggies and a bright and zesty lemon vinaigrette. You will need two sheet pans and two bowls to make it..that’s it! Toss the chickpeas in a flavorful spice mix and roast until golden along with zucchini, peppers and onions. Serve this by itself for a light dinner, or with rice or quinoa (I like to mix the two together!) for something more filling. Looking for more vegetarian meals? Check out some of my favorites!
