I’ve been noticing a trend lately. BOWLS are IN. Right? Based on which recipes you guys pin the most, it seems like you agree with me on this one. Most nights, I want to grab my favorite bowl and load it up with a balanced meal that I can mix up and eat all together. AND I want to make it as quickly as possible.
Luckily Wild Garden makes this kind of dinner super easy with their packaged pilafs and marinades. Heat a pilaf on the stove while your protein marinates, then just cook it up and put it all together! Easy peasy!
I wanted to make this Mediterranean Shrimp Bowl really fun and flavorful, so I kind of ran with the theme ? The base is their bulgar pilaf with some fresh cilantro, topped with chopped cucumbers, shredded carrots, marinated artichokes, olives and sliced avocado. As if that wasn’t enough goodness, there’s also a dollop of Wild Garden Hummus and Persian Marinated Shrimp on top! SO. GOOD.
To be honest, they suggest the Persian marinade for poultry or vegetables, but I decided to go rogue and test it on shrimp! I used it on chicken wings when I first discovered Wild Garden, and they were so freaking good that I had to try it on shrimp. Verdict? It’s awesome.
Of course you can play with the toppings – but I really enjoyed this combo of flavors. Creamy avocado, salty olives, crunchy cucumbers/carrots? It all complimented each other so well! But the best part? It comes together in less than 20 minutes. Hallelujah!
gimme that Mediterranean shrimp bowl!
