With the hectic schedule of back-to-school, I crave simple, healthy meals that can be thrown together easily and quickly. A power bowl is a beautiful, nourishing meal that’s easy to make with whatever veggies, grains and other fun ingredients you have on-hand.

Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is one staple that’s always in my pantry. Portable, filling and ready in just 60 seconds; it can conveniently be used along with other ingredients to create an easy meal or eaten straight out of the cup with a little honey and peanut butter for a filling breakfast or snack. I keep one or two in my desk drawer at work and, for lunch, often simply mix it up with a little salsa and grilled chicken for a complete meal, likety-split.

Not only are these big salad bowls wholesome and flavorful, they make me feel light and satisfied all at the same time. One of my favorite versions are Greek power bowls. There are no rules here, so take what you like, and leave what you don’t. This power bowl can be made vegan, vegetarian or you can add whatever protein you like on top. Grilled shrimp or chicken would be a pretty tasty addition, in my opinion.

While the ingredients listed in the recipe are a guideline, feel free to mix it up with the ingredients that are your favorites. Greek salad traditionally has cucumber, tomato, red onion and kalamata olives, so those ingredients were a must for me. I added Minute® Ready to Serve Rice and chickpeas to really bulk up the power bowl and fuel my day. Oh and included avocado because, well, avocado… nuff said!

I hope you all LOVE this bowl as much as I do! It’s:

Easy to make
Incredibly nutritious
Protein- and fiber-rich
Vegetable-packed
And so over-the-top tasty

This is the perfect meal for most any occasion, but especially when you’re craving a healthy, hearty lunch or dinner. It packs up beautifully for work the next day for lunch. Plus, it’s ideal for serving to a crowd as it’s suitable for pretty much every kind of special diet. Win win!

This flavorful bowl is best enjoyed with pita bread or pita chips and creamy hummus. See all of my favorite hummus recipes, if you’re into whipping up a homemade variety. I even like to stuff the filling into a pita pocket. No matter how you chow down on these Greek Power Bowls, you’re sure to love them as much as my family does!
