Made at Home: Vegan Quinoa Bowl

Vegan bowls are our new favourite dinner. We love experimenting with different healthy ingredients and flavour combinations. The key to a good bowl is making sure you have a hearty base (like quinoa, brown rice, sticky rice, etc), loading it up with veggies (preferably seasonal) and protein, and then topping the whole thing off with a delicious sauce or  spread. Today’s bowl was based on this amazing recipe from Oh She Glows. We made a few alterations, like nixing the purple cabbage and green salad and instead cooking up some spinach and beet greens with garlic and pine nuts. For our chickpea coating we decided to use garlic powder, sea salt, turmeric, and garam masala. We also topped off the dish with sesame seeds instead of hemp seeds, and whipped up some of our own jalepeno hummus. The whole thing only took about 45 minutes to make, and it’s probably the healthiest thing I’ve eaten all week. Vegan bowls, where have you been all my life?
