Bowls are IN – and somehow (not sure why!) but there is something more appealing about healthy food in a bowl than on a plate 🙂
And the great thing about bowls is that as long as there is variety – and colour – you can vary the theme each time, so it never gets boring! You can use any grain as a base, plenty of herbs, throw in a few beans and pop a poached egg on top for extra protein.
2 cups of tri-colour quinoa
1 cup of frozen peas (this ratio of quinoa and peas will make enough for around 4 bowls)
Spring of mint leaves
1 block of halloumi cheese
1 egg – for topping
Slice of lemon to garnish
Bring 2.5 cups of water to the boil in a saucepan, then add the 2 cups of quinoa, cover the pan and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
After 5 minutes add the peas to the quinoa
While the quinoa is cooking slice halloumi and fry until golden on both sides.
Chops the mint and smash the avocado
Poach the egg
Drain the quinoa and peas.
Then have fun building your bowl! You can also add sauerkraut, vegies and herbs to taste – enjoy!
