Sumac Chicken Kabobs Quinoa Bowls Recipe – juice sumac chicken kabobs, grilled zucchini, roasted chickpeas, lettuce and rainbow quinoa, come together in the perfect nutritious and delicious bowls. Topped with yogurt sauce.


I made these quinoa bowls for dinner a few weeks back.

They are loaded with just about everything I like to eat – grilled meat, quinoa, grilled veggies, greens and roasted chickpeas.

Very easy to put together for a simple weeknight meal.


While I’ve never been a vegetarian, I love veggies.

I used to eat meat less often that I do now.

It is like I need to have meat every day.

I’ve had iron deficiency throughout my pregnancy and I do take iron pills three times a day.

I feel lack of energy, and the best thing I can do about is it make a protein-packed, filling meal.

And of course I have a lot of small snacks like these roasted chickpeas.


This is one of the reasons why I’ve been obsessed with grilled meat.

It does not take much time to prepare and tastes great.

You can also grill meat in advance on the weekend and then store it in the fridge and add to meals throughout the week.


These sumac chicken kabobs are made with pieces of chicken breast and seasoned with sumac.

I’ve shared a sumac chicken recipe with you last winter.

Sumac is a spice used in Middle Eastern cooking, which has a mild  lemony flavor and red color.

Read more about it here.

I have some other recipes, where I used sumac, feel free to check them out :

Last but not least, I topped these sumac chicken kabobs quinoa bowls with a garlic yogurt sauce.

It brought some extra flavor to the whole dish.

Can’t wait to make these again!

Have a great weekend!

  1. This bowl has everything I love! And isn’t sumac just the best?! I love that lemony hint it adds to dishes. I could probably use a little more protein in my diet as well so this just perfect for me – pinned so I can make it!

  2. Lovely grilled chicken recipe. Thanks for sharing at the #InspirationSpotlight party. Pinned & shared.
