Mediterranean Bowls

Mediterranean bowls are full of flavor and nutrient rich foods. I love how easy they are to pull together!

This recipe yields 2 mediterranean bowls.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas
  • 1/2 chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives (pitted)
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup hummus
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt & pepper

Instructions

Cook your brown rice according to the package. I like to add a little olive oil and salt to the water before I add the rice. Once cooked, add rice to your bowl for your base.

Wash your cucumbers and chop into small pieces. Wash and cut your tomatoes in half.

Once chickpeas have been rinsed with cold water, add to sauté pan with cumin and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Add all ingredients to the bowl, on top of your rice. Pick your favorite flavor of hummus and add a dollop to the top. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
