Greek Lentil Power Bowl

I’m so glad you found this recipe because it’s hands down one of my absolute favorite dishes on my blog. And it’s also my most popular recipe on Pinterest, so many of you agree with my sentiment.

This Greek Lentil Power Bowl has a variety of different ingredients for a bunch of flavors in each bite. But the best part is that the lentils are the only thing that are actually cooked! That means this comes together really quickly and is great for meal prepping all your lunches (or dinners) in advance. Plus, all of these veggies are hearty and won’t get soggy if prepared in advance. 

Not to mention that lentils are a protein-rich and gluten-free pulse, with 9 grams of protein in ½ cup cooked. So go ahead and whip this up and let me know what you think!

    Maybe I missed it, but is there a print button on your recipes? I’d love to hand a copy to my patients in weight management. Thank you, and great work from RD to another.

      Absolutely. The dressing might be a little tart without the honey, but it’s not necessary.
