How are you doing today?
During our stay in London couple weeks back, we had this amazing lunch at CookDailyLdn. They make by far the best buddha bowls ever! Inspired by our Boxpark visit; listening the coolest live music whilst enjoying our delicious food bowls, I wanted to try to cook sort of my version of their yoga bowl.
This Yoga Glow Bowl is a combination of colorful vegetables, protein rich chickpeas and good wholegrains like quinoa and brown rice simmered in spicy red curry. It’s the kind of warm and comforting stew especially when the colder weather hits in the middle of summer. Hope you love it!
Here are the instructions, happy cooking!
Yoga Glow Bowl
(makes 4-5 servings)
1 cup canned chickpeas + pepper, paprika, mustard seeds, garlic, coriander
2 small red spring onions, diced
3 cm knob fresh ginger, minced
2 medium-sized carrots, sliced
1 medium-sized sweet potato, diced
1 small broccoli head
1 medium-sized zucchini, julienned
2 ½ cups low-sodium vegetable stock
2 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tsp yellow curry powder (no added salt)
1-2 tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp ground cumin
1 ½ tsp red curry paste
1 cup coconut milk
+ brown rice and quinoa for serving
Start by peeling and chopping the veggies. Preheat oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Rinse chickpeas with cold water and transfer onto baking tray. Toss with spices and pop in oven for about 20-25 minutes.
Place diced onions and minced ginger into a large pot and sauté with dash of water or extra virgin olive oil for about 5-10 minutes. Add curry powder, turmeric and cumin, sauté for additional 2-3 minutes.
Add sliced carrots, diced sweet potato, veggie stock, coconut sugar and red curry paste, stir well. Bring to boil and let simmer covered for about 10-15 minutes.
Add broccoli florets, julienned zucchini and coconut milk. Stir well and let simmer for additional 10 minutes or until veggies have softened. Serve over half+half mixture of cooked brown rice and quinoa and top with roasted chickpeas. ENJOY!
