Playing with food for 30 days - day 4
Finally I get to eat my much anticipated Buddha bowl that I found on the Oh She Glows website. I have a link at the bottom of this post if you want to give it a try!
It's so delicious and so filling I just love it! The great thing about this is you can cook the chickpeas and sweet potatoes then just keep cutting fresh veggies each day you want to eat this.
It's best to cut your veggies right before you eat them if you want to get the most nutrients possible, veggies lose antioxidants once they are cut. If this isn't an option and you need to do all your prep in one day then cut away! Precut veggies are still way better than no veggies!
I like to mix kale and a different green as my base, today I used green and red leaf lettuce mixed in with my kale.
I basically added quinoa, chickpeas, sweet potatos, avocado, purple cabbage, carrots and yellow bell pepper to my greens and tossed it in a lemon tahini dressing also found on Oh She Glows website.
On her page she adds hummus and hemp hearts and omits the bell peppers, I've tried it that way and it's also delicious.
You can adjust any recipe you see to suit your desires. I wanted this to be a bit less heavy so I didn't incorporate the hummus, I love bell peppers so I added them. See super easy!
I also didn't measure the dressing and it came out a little thick so I just added some water. Plus I love garlic so I added an extra clove!
For the Oh She Glows Lemon-Tahini Dressing:
1 large garlic clove
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
3 to 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast, to taste
3 to 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, to taste
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
