Mediterranean Hummus Bowl
This Mediterranean hummus bowl uses brown rice as a base and is filled with plenty of vegetables and of course hummus for a tasty, vegetarian meal.
- 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1 cup grape tomatoes sliced
- 1/4 cup red onion
- 3/4 cup cucumber sliced
- 1/4 cup feta cheese
- 1 cup chickpeas drained and rinsed
- 1 tbsp garlic herb seasoning
- Scoop of classic hummus
Start by roasting the chickpeas: preheat oven to 425°. Press as much liquid out of the chickpeas as you can (I use a few paper towels to do this), then pour chickpeas onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle garlic herb seasoning over the chickpeas, then roast for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the package instructions.
Once the rice is cooked, top it with the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, feta, and the roasted chickpeas. Last, add a scoop or two of hummus.
-I used short grain brown rice because it tends to cook more quickly, but you could substitute any kind of rice, quinoa or farro if you prefer
-Make ahead: If you want to make this in advance, prep everything except the chickpeas and place it in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Then, when you're ready to eat it, make the roasted chickpeas.
-You can use homemade or store-bought hummus
