Craving something a little different for lunch but still want it to be healthy? Try out this Greek Grain Bowl. I don't know about you, but I am getting tired of the same ole salad or sandwich for lunch. This grain bowl has exciting textures and yummy flavors mixed throughout. Also, a lot of the ingredients can be found already put together in the store, so it's a time saver!
What goes in a Greek grain bowl?
For this bowl I used a rice blend, romaine lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, feta, pickled red onion, hummus, lemon vinaigrette, and dill. A lot of the ingredients were things I already had in the fridge, so you can add or subtract any of them. Some non negotiables for me would be you need some sort of grain and definitely the hummus. It makes everything so creamy and delious
A lot of the ingredients you can find premade at the store like the hummus, pickle red onions, your favorite vinaigrette and cooked rice or quinoa. I will include instruction on how to make these items out of pantry staples though if you have some extra time.
I like this grain bowl cold like a salad mostly because of the romaine lettuce. Now if you used kale or spinach I think it could work warm. It just depends on the other ingredients you choose to use.
You can definitely assemble the bowls ahead of time, but I wouldn't toss the dressing until you are ready to serve because the lettuce will get soggy.
