Lately, I’ve been having a lot of fun in the kitchen coming up with different meals to make and new recipes to try! I’ve been sharing some of them on Instagram stories here, but thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite meals on the blog today. We are still following the 21 Day Fix eating plan (you can read more about it here), so we are trying to stick with healthy and quick dinners. One meal that I make almost weekly is this 5 minute Mediterranean bowl. Here’s how to make it:
Ingredients (serves 2):
1 cup of brown rice
1 cup of cauliflower rice
1 pint of cherry tomatoes cut in half
1 sliced cucumber
1/2 cup of banana peppers
1 can of rinsed garbanzo beans
2 tablespoons of hummus
2 tablespoons of tzatziki
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
- First, cook the brown rice and cauliflower rice. I always buy frozen brown rice and cauliflower rice that I can just quickly microwave to make things easier during the week.
- While the rice is cooking, cut the cherry tomatoes in half and slice the cucumber. Add them both into a mixing bowl with the banana peppers, then toss everything in olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste.
- Grab a bowl and place the cauliflower rice and brown rice on the bottom. Add some of the tomato, cucumber, and banana pepper mixture on top, along with a few tablespoons of rinsed garbanzo beans.
- Finally, top your Mediterranean bowl with a tablespoon of hummus and tzatziki.
