Lemon & Mint Banza Bowl

This Lemon & Mint Banza Bowl is a super simple salad filled with all the flavors of summer! Fresh mint & veggies are tossed together with Banza Chickpea Rice then topped with a simple homemade lemon dressing.

Serve as a side or make it a meal since the rice is a powered up alternative to regular rice- It has 3 times the protein and 2 times the fiber!
