Mediterranean Quinoa Bowls

This is a perfect meal prep recipe for a healthy weekday meal. I love to cook up a bunch of quinoa cooked in broth for added flavor and keep it on hand in my fridge for the week. I just add 1 cup quinoa and all of the chopped-up veggies and top it with an easy lemon dill dressing and hummus. This super fresh and flavorful bowl is packed with protein from the quinoa and hummus.
