Mushroom and Asparagus Buddha Bowl with Hummus Dressing


Looking for something quick, easy and savory?

Look no further. 


The most difficult part of this recipe is cleaning and chopping up the asparagus and mushrooms. I cut off about 2 inches from the bottom stem of the asparagus and cut the remaining stalks into 2 inch pieces. The white mushrooms I had on hand were pre-sliced from Trader Joe’s.

Simply added the veggies to a pan with olive oil, salt and pepper. I covered the pan and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Easy as that!


The star of the show is the dressing. I hope you enjoy!

1. Cook your grain of choice: quinoa, brown rice, etc.
2. Sauté veggies in olive oil on medium for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the water and sauté for another 8-10 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
