These delicious mediterranean style bowls with beet tzatziki will be your new lunch obsession!

The Deets

Meet my latest meal prep fixation: Mediterranean Style Bowls with Beet Tzatziki, Tabbouleh Salad, Yogurt Marinated Chicken Skewers. This bowl has soo much flavor and full of some of my favorite things, I am just obsessed with it. There’s several parts to this recipe, but the outcome is amazing. You’re going to make your chicken marinade first and let the chicken marinade for 30 minutes (or overnight for more flavor!). Once you cook your chicken, you’ll make your beet tzatiziki, and tabbouleh salad. Pro tip: I use a mini cocotte from Le Creuset to cook my beets in. It’s easy and mess free! Once you have everything made you’ll assemble your bowl of beet tzatziki, tabbouleh and chicken skewers. I added banana peppers, chickpeas, and feta in addition to really make this bowl come to life and pop! You can make the yummy dressing below with vinegar, olive oil, shallots, oregano, and garlic to pour over all of it. Trust me, when I say you’re going to make this on repeat for lunch. If you have leftover beet tzatziki throw it in the fridge and use it on other recipes throughout the week! I love Mediterranean food, it’s so flavorful and delicious.
