Mediterranean Vegetable Bowl

Mediterranean cuisine highlights the best parts of eating healthy. We combine healthy fats such as olive oil and hummus with protein-rich quinoa and a pile of vegetables to create a delicious bowl that’s so much more than your typical salad. We love making bowls for weeknight dinners because it’s so easy to double the recipe and make extra for lunches the next day. You can customize this bowl swapping in other veggies, nuts, seeds, or grains you have at home to create your perfect meal. Enjoy this hearty bowl with bold Mediterranean flavor and feel great doing it.
