High protein summer bowl

I love hearty meals and I love to cook. But now it's so hot outside that cooking at least for lunch is the last thing on my mind.
So I make a lot of fresh bowls that are also high in protein and some healthy fats. I call them all Buddha bowls because it's just easier. And truly, Buddha bowls can have anything.
I always follow a few base rules: always have greens, some of my favorite veggies and one protein (tofu, tempeh, lentils, beans, chickpeas, seitan...)
Let's see how I make this one (which is my favorite lately).

** greens of choice (I prefer romaine lettuce or spinach)
** green onions (1 or 2, depending on your preference)
** 1 medium sweet pepper
** 1 medium tomato
** 1 medium cucumber
** hummus (2-4 tbsp), because hummus is life
** tofu (about 200g) (marinated in soy sauce, garlic powder, chili powder and baked or fried until crispy)
** your favorite sauce

Chop all your veggies. Mix your greens with the green onions. Add the rest of your veggies, hummus and tofu.
Add your favorite sauce and enjoy!
