Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl

Here's a warm version of a Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl. If you want to up the protein, try adding some vegan/vegetarian/grass fed beed/organic turkey meatballs. Eggplant would also be great in this dish; add with the other vegetables to saute. Serve with warm pita if desired.

1 BPA free can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

1 small organic tomato (or try sundried tomatoes if not in season)

1/2 small red onion

1/2 green bell pepper
