A plant-based Mediterranean meal that you can prep ahead of time for delicious meals all week long. 



  1. Prep all falafel, Israeli salad, hummus, tzatziki, and tahini dressing by following linked recipes.
  2. Combine bowls by adding 1 cup chopped baby spinach, 1/2 cup brown rice, and 1/4 cup chopped purple cabbage to each bowl.
  3. Top each bowl with 3-4 baked falafel patties, 1/2 cup Israeli salad, 2 Tablespoons hummus, 2 Tablespoons tzatziki, 1 Tablespoon harissa, 1 Tablespoon feta and pickled onions, if using. Serve bowls with zesty tahini dressing on the side so each person can add the dressing to taste.
  4. Serve with a side of fresh pita bread or baked pita chips.


  • Harissa is super spicy and might be hard to find. If you don’t like spicy foods or can’t find it, simply omit it from the recipe.
  • If you want more protein, my apple cider vinegar chicken would be an awesome addition!
