Shawarma bowls are a popular Middle Eastern dish that features a bed of flavorful rice topped with tender, marinated meat (typically chicken or beef), grilled vegetables, and a variety of toppings and sauces. The dish is similar to the popular street food, shawarma, but served in a bowl rather than wrapped in a pita or flatbread.
To make shawarma bowls, the meat is typically marinated in a blend of spices and yogurt, then grilled or roasted until tender and juicy. Vegetables such as bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes are also grilled or roasted and added to the bowl. The rice is usually cooked with aromatic spices like cumin and turmeric to give it a delicious flavor and yellow color.
Once the rice and meat are ready, they are layered in a bowl and topped with a variety of toppings such as chopped lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and pickles. Finally, a drizzle of tahini sauce or garlic sauce is added for extra flavor.
Shawarma bowls are a delicious and healthy meal that can be customized with different meats, vegetables, and toppings to suit individual tastes. They are also a great option for meal prep, as they can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for several days.
