easy greek bowls

These bowls are a true triple threat: easy to prepare, loaded with nutritious ingredients and packed with flavor! Give burrito bowls the night off and give this Mediterranean-inspired dish a try. Top with your favorite protein like chicken, steak, falafel or shrimp. We’ll say it now, these make #saddesklunches a thing of the past, so you may want to consider making a double batch!

Easy Greek Bowls

3 cups cooked quinoa

3 cups cooked chickpeas (~2 cans)

30 Kalamata olives, pitted (~5 oz jar)

⅓ cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped

⅓ cup fresh oregano, chopped

⅓ cup fresh dill, chopped 

⅓ cup feta, crumbled

Optional: protein of your choice (we used sliced chicken breast)

Dressing

1 cup olive oil

6 T lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, minced (~2 tsp)

2 tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

  1. Whisk the dressing together or put it in jar and shake until emulsified.

Tips

  • This can be made ahead and packed easily for lunches. 
  • Add chopped spinach or romaine if you’d like more greens.
  • You can easily substitute cooked cauliflower rice, regular rice or couscous for the quinoa.
