Recipe

I am obsessed with grain bowls and salads at the moment. Literally every time I make quinoa or another hearty grain, I double or triple the recipe to make sure I have enough leftover for quick and healthy lunches and dinners like today's Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl. Now the secret sauce that makes this recipe so good is the hummus dressing. It couldn't be easier - it's just hummus, lemon juice, water, and any spices you want to add - but it adds so much flavor since you get a little hummus in every bite.
