Bowls like this one are great for a quick, nutritious and delicious meal. They are good for lunch/or supper. The different possibilities and combinations for a bowl like this are endless. So many different ingredients can be used in different ways. Then comes the different possibilities for dressings. This is my second bowl post, the first one was Amazing Vegan Bowl with nutritional Yeast Sauce.
They are especially quick if you think ahead and do some of the preparation ahead of time. By this I mean cooking a big pot of rice or quinoa at the begining of the week and keeping it in the fridge ready to go.Cooking rice is the longest part of the prep. Quinoa however can be cooked in about 12 minutes so it is perfect if you don’t have much time or you don’t have some in the fridge. Cooking a big pot of chickpeas ahead of time is also a great idea. I like to make a lot soIi can make some hummus as well! So if you haven’t had the chance to do this, simply open a can.
The dressing can also be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge. If you have your rice, chickpeas and dressing ready all you need to do is grate some carrots and steam some kale. This means you can have a beautiful bowl ready in less then 10 minutes! How do you feel about that? I feel pretty good about it.
