Beautiful Abundance Bowl

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 presetI’ve been out and about a lot lately, which often means I opt for eating the most delicious sounding thing, rather than the healthiest. So when I’m at home all I want are green smoothies and big bowls of veggies to keep me feeling vibrant and balanced.

This recipe was inspired by Sarah and my most recent trip to the farmers’ market. It’s exactly what I want in a summer meal: light yet filling, full of veggies and flavours with a balance of fibre, protein, and healthy fats. The avocado and hummus make this bowl deliciously creamy, with earthy flavours from the beet, a slight spiciness from the radishes, and the zingy freshness of mint. I’m completely in love with this particular flavour combination, but think of it more as a formula than a recipe, as it will lend itself well to any seasonal farmers’ market bounty.

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 presetBeautiful Abundance Bowl
2 cups mixed salad greens
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 large beet, steamed and diced
1 small avocado, diced
1/2 bunch of radishes, thinly sliced
3 slices of halloumi (approximately half an inch wide)*
1/4 cup hummus
3tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds
10 mint leaves, thinly slices
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add halloumi slices.
2. Flip slices when they begin to brown, approximately one minute per side.
3. Assemble lettuce, quinoa, beet, avocado, radishes, and halloumi in a bowl.
4. Top with hummus and pumpkin seeds.
5. Squeeze lemon juice over top.
6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired.

*for a vegan version, substitute marinated tofu for the halloumi. My favourite version is from the Fresh at Home cookbook.

As it feels like summer is closer and closer to ending (say it ain’t so!), is anyone else trying to soak up every last drop of seasonal goodness while they can? All I want to do is BBQ, eat ice cream, and snack on farm fresh berries – which is exactly why I’m planning a picnic for Saturday! What are you up to this weekend?

Love, studded sandals, & rainbow sundresses,


  1. I’m so addicted to halloumi, which is why I don’t buy it often. Now, I must satisfy my craving!
