Lemon-Roasted Vegetable Hummus Bowls


Brimming with colorful roasted vegetables, these plant-based meal-prep lunch bowls are high in fiber to keep you full through the afternoon. The easy roasted veggies are based on a popular recipe from our sister magazine (see Associated Recipes). Feel free to use your favorite store-bought hummus to cut down on prep time, or make a batch of your own (see Tip). You can also sub in an 8-ounce microwaveable quinoa pouch to minimize cooking.

4 servings


  • 1 ½ cups cauliflower florets

  • 1 ½ cups broccoli florets

  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup diced red bell pepper (1-inch)

  • ¾ cup diced zucchini (1-inch)

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest

  • 2 cups cooked tricolor quinoa, cooled

  • 1 cup hummus (see Tip)

  • 4 lemon wedges

  • 1 medium avocado


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine cauliflower, broccoli and garlic on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with oregano and salt; stir to coat. Roast for 10 minutes.

  2. Add bell pepper and zucchini to the vegetables in the pan; stir to combine. Roast until the vegetables are crisp-tender and lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes more. Sprinkle lemon zest over the vegetables; set aside to cool before assembling bowls.

  3. Divide the roasted vegetables among 4 single-serving containers. Top each with 1/2 cup quinoa and 1/4 cup hummus and add a lemon wedge to each container. Seal the containers and refrigerate for up to 4 days. To serve, squeeze the lemon wedge over the bowl and top with one-fourth avocado, diced.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
