Quick? Vegetarian? Impressive looking? This Easy Hummus Bowl ticks every box. Enjoy this 10 minute vegetarian family meal for lunch or dinner.

Salad Falafel Bowl recipe with rice, hummus and salad.

There seems to be a trend in restaurants and fancy salad bars recently for calling a salad piled up a ‘bowl’. You know what? I’m 100% here for it.

Because LOOK at this beautiful Hummus Bowl! 👀

So easy to pull together with easy to find ingredients to make something that looks altogether more fancy than we secretly know it is.

Yes, we always like to make food from scratch but some ready made buys (like the falafels here) are just what you need to make a quick dinner when there’s limited time.

This can be served hot or cold and or course, leftovers would make a delicious lunch.

You’ll love this recipe because:

✅ Few budget ingredients

✅ So much flavour and hearty goodness

✅ Will keep you full for ages

 FAQs about this Easy Hummus Bowl Recipe

Can I make my own hummus and falafels?

Yes, of course.

Hummus is a relatively low-effort homemade dish, with falafels slightly more involved. Store-bought ones are a pretty good substitute though.

Can I boil dry rice for this?

Yes sure, just cook the rice according to pack instructions and replace the microwave pouches I’ve specified.

Can I add meat to this recipe?

Yes, go for it if you don’t want this as a vegetarian dish.

You could use packs of cooked and flavoured chicken that most supermarket sells, which would be another quick shortcut.

Can I make this vegan?

Yes, just check the ingredients in your falafels and leave out the feta cheese.

    A great summer dish especially when it’s too hot to cook for long. Really tasty ingredients and my vegetarian hating husband loves this dish.

  2. 5 stars
    Loved this, so easy to make (well put together) and the flavours go so well. Does make me think why I do spend so much time in the kitchen when things can be really easy without being fast food. This is one to stay.
    Loving the meal plan this week so far are all winners in my house and great timing as I’m helping my mum move house so I’m pressed for time. I did use normal rice not microwave but chopped everything up and cleared the table in the time the rice took to cook. Thanks again for being so inspiring.
