Following on the heels of my Mexican Buddha Bowl that you all seem to love, I decided to make another one with a Middle Eastern flair. Many of you know that I was born in the Middle East so these flavors are near and dear to my heart. Since the goal is to eat more healthy, Ive included grilled veggies with lots of flavor and a wonderful and fresh Tabouleh. And of course some Chicken and some Fava beans. I also prepared a really easy fresh salad dressing that you could use with so many other dishes and salads.
