The Ultimate Vitamin C & Protein Vegan & GF Buddha Bowl

Did you know Broccoli has more protein than eggs? chicken? salmon? pork?

If you're shaking your head in disbeliefs, I understand, I too was skeptical at first, but it is true! Go research and see for yourself! 

I recommend visiting ThriveCuisine.com where you can find:

1. Actual studies that were done on broccoli and its direct impact on human health.

2. Whether or not you can actually eat too much broccoli.

3. Practical tips to actually eat broccoli (every benefit is useless if you don't eat it, right?)

Did you know that yellow peppers are super uber packed with Vitamin C?

Great to help you fight the common cold, an immune boost and great for the skin!

As I always say, if you'd like to add some grilled chicken or smoked salmon, or white fish to your Buddha bowls, please go ahead. 

I am simply here to encourage you to eat more plant based foods and to show you the benefits you can reap from doing so. However, at the end of the day it is your decision. 

So what's in this bowl then? Let's get to it.


1️⃣baked @200C for about 20mins, yellow bell pepper and baked potatoes sprinkled with olive oil, paprika, sea salt, black pepper, and herbs (rhyme, sage, rosemary, oregano, etc.)


2️⃣baked broccoli, simply drizzled with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper @200C for 20mins (and at 10mins I added in some blond sesame seeds to toast them) The Broccoli is then topped with a touch of tahini & lemon as a dressing. 


3️⃣miso mushrooms with onion and garlic, from a previous bowl, same recipe with soy sauce and miso (oil-free)

First for the baked potatoes,

  1. Pre-heat the oven @200C
  2. Peel the 1 large potato (or 2 small ones), cut thinly (to bake faster)
  3. In a bowl, place your potatoes with 1 TBSP olive oil, pinch of sea salt, pinch of black pepper, 1/2 tsp thyme, 1 tsp oregano and 1 or 1/2 tsp paprika
  4. Place on a baking sheet that you place on a baking tray, and throw it in the oven @200c for 15mins

For the yellow bell peppers, 

  1. Pre-heat the oven @200C
  2. Peel the yellow bell pepper if you'd like to make it more easy to digest 
  3. Cut out the head of the bell pepper and get rid of the pips 
  4. Cut into fine strips to allow for quicker baking 
  5. In a bowl, place your potatoes with 1 TBSP olive oil, pinch of sea salt, pinch of black pepper, 1/2 tsp thyme, 1 tsp oregano and 1 or 1/2 tsp paprika
  6. Place on a baking sheet that you place on a baking tray, and throw it in the oven @200c for 15mins

For the baked broccoli,

  1. Wash the broccoli very well, you can wash it with white vinegar
  2. Then, in a bowl simply drizzle with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper
  3. Place on a parchment paper and bake for 20mins @200C (and at 10mins I added in some blond sesame seeds to toast them)
  4. The Broccoli is then topped with a touch of tahini & lemon as a dressing. 

For the miso mushrooms, 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of white mushrooms 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 2 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce - tamari is gluten free soy sauce)
  • White miso (optional if you don't have any
  • Pinch of White pepper 
  • Pinch of sea salt 

Method

  1. Peel the mushrooms and chop finely  
  2. In a non-stick pan, place on high heat with a touch of olive oil to start
  3. Once the pan/olive oil is hot, place in your white onion and garlic with a touch of salt and white pepper 
  4. Let them sweat for about 3minutes, then add in your mushrooms and mix well 
  5. You can reduce the heat to avoid the mushrooms burning, but you want them to color a bit (without being burnt)
  6. After 3 minutes or so, add in your 2 tbsp or soy sauce or Tamari which is gluten-free soy sauce, and 1 tsp of white miso
  7. Mix well and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and once your mushrooms look like they'll melt in your mouth and have well absorbed the tamari sauce, you are good to go!
