  • 1 cup broccoli , cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup green beans , cut into pieces
  • 1 cup mushrooms , cut into fourths
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 ½ cups chickpeas , drained and rinsed (about one 15 ounce can)
  • 2 cups ready cooked rice , I used the ready rice by Maya Kaimal
  • 1 cup cooked riced cauliflower , optional (I used frozen)
  • ½ cup tikka masala sauce , plus more to drizzle over the top (I used the Maya Kaimal brand)
  • Cilantro , optional for garnish
  • Lime wedges , optional for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Mix veggies with ¼ cup tikka masala sauce and put on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Mix chickpeas with ¼ cup tikka masala sauce and put on another parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake veggies for 20-25 minutes. Bake chickpeas for 30-35 minutes.
  • Mix rice and cauliflower rice together, if using.
  • When done serve the chickpeas and veggies over the rice and top with more tikka masala sauce. Garnish with lime and cilantro if using.


  • You can use any other veggies you like, see post for ideas. Just make sure total amount is around the same.
  • You can make your own tikka masala, but I like using this one for a very quick and easy dinner.
  • You can also cook your own rice, but this ready rice made this dinner super fast.
