Hummus Buddha Bowl
Looking for a quick and easy lunch? Look no further than this Hummus Buddha Bowl! Ready in under 10 minutes, it makes a delicious and filling lunch that anyone will love.
Hummus is such a versatile ingredient, there honestly are so many different things you can do with it. Not only does it work well as a dip for snacks, it spreads well in sandwiches, works well in tuna or chicken salads, and also works perfectly well as the star of the show in a buddha bowl! Although store-bought hummus is really easy to find, it is also really easy to make at home; just a few ingredients thrown into a blender go a really long way to create this rich and creamy dip. Plus, once you’ve got the basic homemade hummus recipe down, you can add extra spices and herbs to make any flavour you like.
This Hummus Buddha Bowl is not only quick to whip together, but packed full of plant-based protein for a hearty and filling meal.
