Not sure about you, but these harissa chicken meatball bowls are definitely a new rotation in our dinner menu! Harissa and garlic seasoned chicken meatballs paired with garlicky feta tzatziki, salad greens, hummus, chopped veggies and pita chips make the ultimate salad bowl!
Harissa Chicken Meatballs
Doesn’t that sound so good?? It’s nice and spicy (but not too spicy, depending on the harissa paste you use!) and super flavorful without a ton of ingredients!
What’s in these meatballs?
- Ground Chicken – Feel free to replace with your preferred ground meat or meat alternative of your choice
- Harissa Paste
- Onions – diced
- Spices – Ground cumin & ground coriander, salt as needed
- Fresh herbs – Cilantro, parsley
- Apple cider vinegar
As the meatballs are cooking, I like to whip with the garlicky feta tzatziki. Its just a quick mix of grated (and drained) cucumber, garlic, feta cheese, Greek yogurt, lemon juice and vinegar. Taste for salt and pepper and try not to finish it off before the meatballs are ready!!
After that, it is really just a matter of getting all the other bowl toppings ready! Grab your salad greens, chopped veggies, hummus, pita chips. And anything you feel like adding!
I could really go on and on with the toppings here! But I gotta stop myself! Although its really up to you how you want to customize these bowls! Have fun with it!
More Ways to Customize these Bowls!
Make them vegetarian! Replace the ground chicken meatballs with your favorite veggie options instead. Canned chickpeas, cubed tofu, cauliflower florets all make great alternatives here!
Change up the base! Try this bowls with rice, quinoa or roasted veggies instead salad greens!
Mix and match your favorite dips and spreads! Get creative with the tzatziki and hummus options. There are so many flavors to choose from, make your own or store bought!
Add your favorite crunch! I love having pita chips with these harissa chicken meatball bowls, but they’re also great with soft, warm pita bread, buttered naan, tortilla chips or roasted chickpeas make the ultimate crunch!
