Hummus Bowl

Ever look in your fridge and think “I have no idea what I want?” That happens to me often on the weekends, when I already did my meal prep and ate everything I made. So recently, I had some hummus left in the fridge and all the salad fixings…but no meat like chicken or tuna. I’d heard of hummus bowls but never tried one and honestly I was afraid I was going to hate it, but I said I’ll give it a shot. It was one of the best and most delicious salads I have ever had… and guess what? I was actually full afterwards! Check out the recipe below:

Hummus Bowl

Ingredients:

1/2 cup cooked brown rice

1.5 cups mixed greens 

1/4 cup hummus (I LOVE garlic hummus)

1/4 red pepper, diced

1/4 cucumber, diced

2 Tbsp green or black olives, halved

1/2 stick celery, diced

1-2 slices onions (white or yellow), diced

1/2 Roma tomato, diced

5-6 Whole wheat crackers (Triscuits) served on the side

Dressing:

Pinch of pepper, salt

Drizzle of Olive oil

1/2 lemon, squeeze for juice

Instructions:

  1. Cook your rice by the instructions on the back of the container.
  2. As the rice is cooking dice up the red pepper, cucumber, olives, celery, onions, and tomatoes.
  3. Place the lettuce at the bottom of your bowl.
  4. Next layer add the rice and then top it with red pepper, cucumber, olives, celery, onions, tomatoes, and hummus in your bowl.
  5. Drizzle Olive oil over your bowl and squeeze lemon juice over your toppings. 
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Place crackers on the side.
  8. Enjoy!
