Tutorial: Luscious Bowl

Posted Mar 04 2011 12:00am

Hi guys!! I LOVED reading all of your responses to my post on what my life would be like in the US! It seemed like the majority of you would shop at Harrods, take the underground, drink tea, and see all the touristy sites if YOU lived in London! I can tell you that even though I’ve lived here for 13 years.. I still haven’t been to all the tourist sites! I need to play ‘tourist in my own city’ one of these days!

Remember when I talked about how I wanted to eat more grains? Well, I HAVE and I LOVE them… love them so much that  I would like to share with you all an easy, quick, healthy and well rounded meal that I have been loving!

I shall call them: Luscious Bowls!! (Or Grain Bowls to be exact ;) but they are truly luscious!

THE BEST PART IS…. You can make SO MANY different combos!! The possibilities are endless…

QUITE a genius idea on my part!


(It’s really not that genius at all)

So Here’s how to do it:

Step ONE: Pick a whole grain

Quinoa, bulgur, brown rice, barley etc…

Step TWO: Pick a protein

Tofu, beans, veggie burgers, homemade falafels, tempeh:


Spicy black bean burger

Baked Falafel

Baked Beans

Southwestern Tofu Scramble (use vegan cheese to make vegan or omit)

Tempeh Bacon

Step THREE: Choose a healthy dressing


Vegan Caesar

Vegan Ranch

Vegan Roasted Garlic

Vegan Tahini Goddess

Vegan Vinegar Dijon

Vegan Roasted Red Pepper

Vegan Creamy Basil

Step FOUR: Choose your veggies!

…..anything! (broccoli, carrots, brussel sprouts, mushrooms… etc.. cook the way you like ‘em!)

Now.. you just assemble!

1. Bowl

2. Grain

3. Protein

4. Veggie

5. Pour on the dressing!

1. Bowl (clearly wasn’t big enough!

2. 1/2 cup quinoa, 1/2 cup bulgur

3. Haricot beans (sauteed in paprika, garlic, onion and cumin)

4. Steamed broccoli and brussel sprouts

5. Vegan Tahini Goddess Dressing



Questions of the Day:

What would be in YOUR Luscious Bowl?

Which dressing sounds the most appealing?

What did you have today that was luscious?
