I’m a big fan of any meal that is Mediterranean cuisine inspired. These Greek Bowls with Lemon Tahini Sauce are exactly that. They’re basically everything you’d expect in a Greek salad with the addition of brown rice and a lemon tahini sauce that I want to put on everything.

This dish is easy and healthy. However, it is the farthest thing from boring – it is also super easy to customise if you’re cooking for people with different tastes. Every bite has lots of flavor and I’m always satisfied after this meal.

These Greek Bowls with Lemon Tahini Sauce are the perfect transitional recipe going into Spring. It’s fresh yet comforting at the same time. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

What do I need to make these Greek Bowls?

For this recipe you will need some brown rice. I make life easy by getting Trader Joe’s frozen microwavable packets. You will also need chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, Persian cucumbers, crumbled feta cheese, fresh dill, olives, pickled red onions, and naan.

However, the beautiful thing about this recipe is that if there’s any ingredient that you’re not crazy about, simply omit it. You will still have an amazing and loaded bowl.

Can I make the Lemon Tahini Sauce in advance?

Of course! For the lemon tahini sauce you will need tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. This sauce is my absolute favorite. So, I highly recommend making it not only for this recipe, but for future recipes as well! It would be great on my Mediterranean Farro Salad.
