Buy­ing pre­cooked and frozen grains such as brown rice or quinoa makes it easy to add fiber to your meals with­out cook­ing them from scratch. Here, they’re tossed with chick­peas and an ar­ray of color­ful veg­gies for a com­plete meal. The recipe makes a lit­tle more dress­ing than you’ll need, so we sug­gest re­serv­ing ex­tras in the fridge for quick week­night sal­ads and slaws.
