How To Make A Nourish Bowl! Nourish Bowls are a trend worth diving into! Not only are they delicious they are a sure way to get in a variety of nutrients! I love making bowls personally because they are healthy, satisfying, easy to make, even easier to clean up and its a great way to make left overs special! If you have never made a nourish bowl yourself heres a few simple steps to get you started!
BEFORE YOU START:
PICK A THEME! This makes it much easier if you have a bit of a theme in mind such as a taco bowl, mediterranean bowl, santa fe bowl, curry bowl, sushi bowl, roasted root bowl, Hawaiian hay stack bowl, sampler bowl etc! They can be as simple or as complex as you'd like! There is no wrong way, unless you’re eating off a plate… then you’re totally left field ;) just kidding!
HOW TO MAKE A NOURISH BOWL
Step 1: PICK A BASE: ANY TYPE OF LEAFY GREENS
(KALE, LETTUCE, SPINACH, COLLARD GREENS)
Step 2: CHOOSE A GRAIN AND OR STARCHY VEGETABLE: AS MANY AS YOU WANT
(RICE, QUINOA,LENTILS, BEAN ETC AND/OR PUMPKIN, POTATO, SWEET POTATO, SQUASH, CARROT, CAULIFLOWER RICE ETC)
Step 3: CHOOSE A PROTEIN: VEGAN CHOICES- TOFU, LENTILS, BEANS, TEMPAH, CHICKPEAS
Step 4: CHOOSE VEGETABLES:FRESH, ROASTED, SPIRALED, STEAMED, CHOPPED-HOW EVER AND WITH WHATEVER YOU HAVE ON HAND OR IN THE MOOD FOR.
Step 5: CHOOSE A HEALTHY FAT: NUTS, SEEDS, AVOCADO, VEGAN CHEESE ETC.
Step 6: CHOOSE YOUR DRESSING: HUMMUS, SALSA, HOMEMADE CASHEW CREAM SAUCE, VINAIGRETTES, PESTO, OLIVE OIL SALT AND PEPPER
Step 7: CHOOSE HERBS AND CITRUS: A SQUEEZE OF LEMON AND A FEW FRESH HERBS IS SURE TO BRING YOUR BOWL TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
(LEMON LIME, BASIL, PARSLEY, CILANTRO, DILL, MINT)
Step 8: ASSEMBLE: If I am in a hurry I will just toss it all in a bowl or serve everything separately and let people build their bowl bowls! If you want to make a “proper nourish bowl” start with your base- your greens, add your main starch or root vegetable, and then in sections place the rest of the ingredients in a pie shape and drizzle with your choice of flavoring!
Step 9: ENJOY!!!
