This Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl recipe is perfect to meal prep and bring for work lunches, especially if you don’t have easy access to a microwave, because you can just eat it cold! I absolutely love the flavor combination in this bowl. ALL THE GOODS. It is also meatless, so it’s an awesome option for all my plant-based friends out there! I love to incorporate multiple vegetarian meals throughout the week, and lunch is one of the best times for me to do that, because I’m not a huge fan of reheated meat.
The chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) + hummus provide a healthy dose of plant-based protein, and the nuts + olive oil offer up some heart-healthy fats! And let us not forget about the delicious fresh veggies — red onions + cucumbers. Quinoa is one of my favorite grains to use in dishes like this, because it keeps well in the fridge for several days. So delish!
