Sheet Pan Greek Chickpeas

 

sheet pan greek chickpeas
This quick and easy vegetarian sheet pan meal is not only flavorful, colorful and delicious, but it is super satisfying! It is a perfect dinner to serve any night of the week, especially if you are trying to incorporate my plant-based meals into your repertoire. I love to serve this with my soft, pillowy Naan, but it is also great with a nice bowl of rice. Leftovers (if there are any) can be served over a nice salad with my favorite Greek Salad Dressing for a quick and healthy lunch.
