Mediterranean Quinoa and Hummus Bowls with Spiralized Cucumbers

In an effort to make more meal prep friendly meals, we have an easy bowl meal that can literally be made in 5 minutes, as long as everything is prepped ahead of time!

And, if you saw my post on Instagram, I recently rekindled with hummus, so that’s great news!

I love springing for the “Mediterranean bowls” at veggie-forward restaurants. I love anything made with tahini, I love feta, and I love a good grain bowl.

The arugula in tahini dressing give this bowl meal a salad-like base and gives the bowl the “dressing” it needs. When I ate this, I’d make a forkful of everything and dip it in the hummus in the middle. It was fun to eat!

This dish is totally customizable – don’t like quinoa? Try using brown rice instead or cauliflower rice! Don’t do dairy? Omit the feta – it’s not necessary! Want more protein? Chicken or salmon would work best! Make it yours, as always.

And normally, I say to pat dry cucumber noodles after you spiralize them, but here, it’s better if the cucumbers are fresh and have moisture on them – it complements the textures of this bowl better!

And for those of you wondering, I had an amazing birthday yesterday. 31 feels like it’s going to be magical, especially now that I’m officially out of the baby haze! Thanks for all the well wishes!

I would love to make this for my lunches next week. How would you you prep this. How far in advance can you toss the dressing to the lettuce. I meal prep Sunday for the work week. Thank you !
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Kellie! This is a great dish to meal prep! Would recommend prepping everything except the dressing and adding that in at the last minute to avoid soggy lettuce!
