Quick and Easy Mediterranean Bowl

If you follow me on Instagram then earlier this week you may have seen a picture of one of my lunches. I am beginning to make a real attempt at eating better and becoming more conscience of what I put into my body. It can be a real struggle for me especially when I think about pizza, cheeseburgers, and tacos most of my days. But I know how important it is to eat well not only for myself but for my children.

One of my favorite types of foods is Mediterranean. I mean I wish smaller towns would appreciate more diverse foods and provide me some amazing takeout. However that is not the case so many times I have to create great tasting diverse foods at home. I have been obsessed with burrito bowls so I decided to create a quick and easy Mediterranean bowl.

Quick and Easy Mediterranean Bowl


3 tbsp quinoa, cooked

1/4 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained

kalamata olives

2 tbsp hummus

2 tbsp tzatziki

1 small cucumber

1/2 cup grape tomatoes

1/4 cup of red onions

1/4 cup feta cheese

olive oil

1 tsp white vinegar


  1. Wash cucumber and tomatoes and chop. Chop red onion. Place all in bowl. Mix in a drizzle of olive oil, 1 tsp of vinegar, feta cheese, and salt to taste.
  2. Assemble bowl. Add chickpeas that have been rinsed and drained, cooked quinoa, kalamata olives, and vegetable mix. On top add hummus and tzatziki.

I want to add that I made the tzatziki using this recipe.

Also do not be afraid to add more or less of something! I am in love with olives so I added tons of those into the bowl. I find any kind of meal that you make in a bowl you truly cannot screw it up!

This is so quick and easy that I was able to enjoy it a couple days this week! Always a win when you can make enough to last! Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
