Summer. in. a. bowl.

I honestly think all summer dinners should be like this. Light, fresh and super quick to put together. I made homemade hummus for this recipe (using this hummus recipe which make the most incredible smooth and creamy hummus) which made it take slightly longer than it otherwise would.

Especially because our blender packed up halfway through and we had to dig out the old one we’ve been meaning to get rid of. Anyway, you could absolutely use your favourite store bought hummus in this recipe and it would take just minutes to make which is an absolute dream in my opinion.

The beef is spiced with a mixture of my favourite spices and fried until just a little crispy and browned on the bottom. Then it’s served on top of your hummus and topped with bright and fresh summer tomatoes. Perfection.

Why we love these spiced beef hummus bowls…

This is such a quick and easy dinner recipe which you can make using shop bought hummus so that it can be ready in just 15 minutes!

It’s a light and healthy meal that’s perfect for a summer lunch or dinner. 

These bowls are so easy to customise and you could easily use chicken, turkey or lamb in place of the beef or try a difference crunchy summer vegetable on top.

Want to make them vegetarian or vegan? No problem! Switch the meat for spiced aubergine or even crumbled spiced tofu and you’re sorted!
