Quick & Easy Nourish Bowl

This simple Nourish Bowl with fresh veggies, chickpeas, hummus, and avocado is light and refreshing and can be enjoyed every day!

Everyday Nourish Bowl made with nutrient dense ingredients in a white bowl

A quick and easy everyday nourish bowl, everyone should have one!

I put this nourish bowl recipe together with simple, accessible ingredients in mind. All ingredients are fresh except for the hummus and chickpeas, making it a cinch to pull together!

When the weather is on the chilly side, opt for roasted vegetables, like this Roasted Nourish Bowl. It’s especially good in the cooler fall and winter months.

What Is A Nourish Bowl?

Nourish bowls, also known as Buddha bowls or macro bowls, are well-balanced, healthy meals containing a good portion of nutrient-dense vegetables and/or fruits, carbohydrates, and protein and topped with a dressing of sorts. They make for a light and healthy lunch, dinner, or make-ahead meal ideas.

Gather your ingredients and make a nourish bowl for yourself! It’s a complete meal that will nourish and revitalize you in the simplest way every day!

Everyday Nourish Bowl: Ingredients

How To Make A Fresh Nourish Bowl

Ingredients you’ll need:

Vegetables & Fruits

  • leafy greens of choice (I used baby kale)
  • carrots
  • grape or cherry tomatoes
  • red onion
  • cucumbers
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 lemon

Carbohydrates & Protein

  • cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • hemp hearts


Build your bowl:

  1. Once the veggies have been prepped, add them to your serving bowl with the beans.
  2. Add a big fat dollop of your favorite hummus in the middle – that’s the best place for it!
  3. Sprinkle your seeds, squeeze lemon over the top, and enjoy to your heart’s content!


  • For the leafy greens, I picked up some baby kale on sale, but you can use whatever greens you like.
  • If you don’t have the pumpkin or hemp seeds, sub in sunflower or sesame seeds.

  • 1/2 cup carrots, grated or sliced
  • handful cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced or green onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • a dollop of hummus
  • pepitas (pumpkin seeds), to garnish
  • hemp hearts, to garnish
  • 1 lemon, squeezed at serving


Place your ingredients in your serving bowl, add a big dollop of hummus to the middle, sprinkle with seeds and a big squeeze of lemon.

As a side note: Say out loud, or to yourself, “I am grateful for all that is,” while keeping good thoughts in your mind. Then dig in and nourish yourself every day!

Serves 1


Add in any vegetables you prefer….broccoli florets, sliced zucchini, radishes, bell peppers, artichokes hearts, olives, etc. In the cooler months try adding in roasted vegetables like sweet potato, butternut squash, broccoli, carrots, etc. You can also add in some fresh herbs like parsley or cilantro if you have them on hand.

Sub in sunflower seeds and/or sesame seeds for the pumpkin seeds and hemp hearts.

For the best chickpea flavor, try making them fresh at home. It’s really easy and nothing beats the freshness of homemade chickpeas!

Enjoy and be grateful!

  5. Julie I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog! Although I've been a vegetarian for years, I seem to have neglected the part where you care about what you're eating and how you're eating. I've really come to embrace the raw and fresh food lifestyle and totally agree about how nourishing it is for you! Love this dish, a simple way to get in a bunch of delicious foods! :) Excited to follow along with your blog!

    This looks great! What else could I use in place of the hummus?

    1. julie@thesimpleveganista says:

      Hummus is my only recommendation for this bowl. I'm sure there are other things you can use like salad dressings and such but the hummus is exceptional! Do what you feel suits you best. :)
