Notes:

  • If you do not have leftover Rice, you can easily make them. For this, you need to soak Basmati rice for 10 minutes and then cook it in boiling water with salt for almost 7-8 minutes till the rice grain is cooked nicely. Drain the rice and let it cool down a bit before you use it in this recipe.
  • You can add vegetables of your choice like sweet corn, potatoes, zucchini, broccoli, etc, and make this bowl even healthier.
  • However, if you don’t have  Spinach Hummus, you can also make this recipe with White Chickpea Hummus or can try different variants of hummus from my blogs like Smoky Tomato Hummus or Roasted Pumpkin Hummus and also Beetroot Hummus will add vibrancy to your vegetarian Mediterranean hummus bowl.
