Meal Prep Mediterranean Bowls - Lexi's Clean Kitchen

We’re taking the Mediterranean Veggie Fritters from last week’s Meatless Monday post and piling them over the best cucumber tomato salad, crispy za’atar roasted chickpeas, and marinated feta! Put a dollop of the No-Bean Hummus from the Lexi’s Clean Kitchen Cookbook on top (or your favorite store-bought hummus) and devour these delicious bowls!

Cucumbers, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, pepperoni, red onion, marinated artichokes, and fresh herbs make up this fabulous salad base! The dressing is made from the marinated feta and it’s divine!

  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Crunchy Za’tar Chickpeas:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon za’tar spice blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste

  • 1 Cucumber, diced
  • 2 roasted marinated red peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 cup marinated artichokes
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 case cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. Place all marinated feta ingredients into an air-tight container. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours before using.
  2. Make the dressing: Place all dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set-aside.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 350℉. Line a sheet-tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  4. Drain cooked chickpeas and pat dry with a towel.
  5. Add chickpeas to a medium mixing bowl with oil, za’tar, and sea salt. Toss until chickpeas are well coated.
  6. Spread chickpeas onto the parchment lined sheet-tray in a single layer. Roast for 40 minutes, or until the chickpeas have started to harden.
  7. Let cool for at least 20 minutes to let the chickpeas firm up. They will be soft when you first take them out. Store in an air-tight container.
  8. In a medium mixing bowl, add in base salt ingredients. Pour 2 teaspoons of lemon vinaigrette over ingredients and toss to combine. Taste and adjust dressing as desired.
  9. Top with roasted chickpeas, hummus, feta, veggie fritters, and a dash of za’tar. Serve warm or cold!
