Yogi bowls, Buddha bowls, all-in-one bowls—they’re not only delicious and convenient, they’re also a unique way of getting all the nutrition your body needs in one go. Truly sublime! Enough protein, carbohydrates, good fats, vegetables, nuts and seeds--with a pseudo-grain like quinoa (which is actually a seed) --is what you can expect from these one-bowl wonders. The “standard” formula for your average bowl is simple:

 

20% grains like quinoa, any kind of rice, couscous, spelt, etc

25% veggies that you steam, fry, roast or eat raw

30% green, raw (leafy) vegetables like spinach, kale and broccoli

20% boiled beans like lentils, peas, edamame, green beans, etc

5% seeds and nuts, preferably unroasted

You can also add a touch of (dried) seaweed—healthy and tasty!

 

 

INGREDIENTS FOR THE BOWL

  • 200 g mixed rice, cooked
  • 1/8 of a red cabbage, julienned
  • 1 medium-sized carrot, peeled and julienned
  • 1/3 of a cucumber, sliced once in half, washed and julienned
  • 4 small handfuls of lamb’s lettuce
  • 2 handfuls of edamame, blanched
  • 2 tbs sesame seeds (roasted, if possible) or black sesame seeds
  • 1 chili pepper sliced into rings
  • 1 small handful of fresh coriander leaves for garnish

 

INGREDIENTS FOR HOISIN DRESSING

  • 3 tbs hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbs sesame oil
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs rice vinegar
  • ½ tsp agave syrup
  • 1/8 tsp Chinese Five-spice

 

 

INDIAN YOGI BOWL

With this Indian yogi bowl, we stick to the same principles and quantities as the first recipe, but then with an Indian twist. Of course, there is a lot of room to play with the ingredients. We’ll use brown rice for the basis in this recipe, but you can choose something else if desired. You can also substitute different vegetables, leafy vegetables and beans. The roasted turmeric cauliflower and the yogurt mint dressing in this dish is what sets it apart and gives it that typical Indian character.
