Lucky for me, this month's Recipe Redux theme is Plant Protein Power Bowls:
"Packed with protein, fiber and color, plant power bowls are trendy and delicious. Show us the healthy recipe that’s in your bowl."
Perfect timing for a new plant-inspired menu creation to add to my repertoire! In honor of this month's theme I decided to recreate together a meal that I originally made a few years ago in the form of this Mediterranean inspired dish featuring falafel, couscous, feta and greek yogurt tzatziki sauce. I've had some Fantastic Foods Falafel Mix sitting in my pantry for forever now so I figured it was time to put it to good use! This hearty bowl of mediterranean goodness provides a powerful combination of protein and fiber that will leave you feeling full and satisfied for hours to come.
2 cups cooked couscous (whole wheat)
8oz baked falafel
1 roma tomato, diced small
½ cucumber, diced small
2 tbsp feta cheese
6-8 kalamata olives, pitted and halved (optional)
¼ c greek yogurt tzatziki sauce
For falafel, I utilized Fantastic Foods Falafel Mix, however you could also use this tutorial from The Kitchn.
For the greek yogurt tzatziki sauce I utilized this recipe from Food.com.
