During these crazy times, I've made a conscious decision to try and eat healthy meals whenever I can. Whether it's in the form of incorporating more fruits and vegetables or squeezing in a protein shake here and there.


For this week, I chose to prepare a couple of power bowls as they're loaded with vitamins, fiber and protein 💪💪


This one here is a healthy, light and super delicious Mediterranean bowl. It's base ingredient is bulgur grain, then I topped it up with beans, chickpeas, fresh vegetables and a yummy hummus dip.

Ingredients

Bowl base and toppings

  • 2 cups bulgur grain
  • 1 can fava beans
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 bunch cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 bunch parsley finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes cubed

Hummus dip

  • 2 tbsp hummus
  • 2 tbsp tahini or Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 dash sumac
  • 1 dash cumin
  • 1 dash paprika
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Salt and cayenne pepper to taste

Instructions

Bowl base and toppings

Follow cooking instructions to cook the bulgur. I added 4 cups of water to 2 cups of bulgur, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 dash of cumin, salt and pepper.
Let it simmer on low heat for 20 minutes.
Once the bulgur is done, you can add the veggies and beans.
I chose fava beans and chickpeas as they're delicious and packed with a ton of fiber and nutrients.

Hummus dip

rinse and drain the chickpeas
in a food processor add all ingredients and mix until smooth and creamy
if too thick you can add a little bit of water until you've reached desired thickness
remove hummus dip from the processor and drizzle a bit of olive oil and sumac on top.
Enjoy 😊

Tips

  • Make sure bulgur is cool before adding all the toppings.
  • Also you can have whatever base or toppings that you prefer. I just chose ingredients I like.
