    This was OK, but felt like it was missing something. Maybe add in corn and/or zucchini to round it out a bit more.
    loved it! subbed the quinoa for some cilantro lime rice and added some nopales to the pico de gallo beforehand. also added a bit of chicken.

    This is such a simple recipe and can be jazzed up with whatever you have on hand. The hummus lime dressing is really delicious and adds so much to what otherwise would just be a plain grain bowl. I’ve made it lots of different ways - cooking and seasoning the black beans with some chili powder, adding Moroccan marinated tofu, using brown rice with lime in place of the quinoa, adding sautéed corn and peppers - and it always turns out delicious.

    great! followed the recipe but omitted hummus for chicken and added a cilantro lime dressing. VERY delicious, light, healthy and empowering.

    Very yummy, an excellent nutritious and super-easy recipe! I did my own version of pico de gallo, with tomatoes, onion, baby spinach, salt and lemon juice. Did the job very well. I also used canned kidney bean instead of black bean.
