Vegan Power Bowl

This vegan power bowl is the perfect go-to lunch or dinner meal. It is quick and easy to make and really flavourful. It will definitely leave you sated and satisfied.

Why I haven’t thought of typing a power bowl recipe sooner is beyond me. I eat one almost every day. I am a big fan of eating a whole bunch of different food together to maximise my getting-enough-nutrients-Ness.

Personally, I think eating a power bowl is such an underrated way of getting your five a day. You really can steam or grill or bake some great vegetables, make a puree or dressing, and voila, you’ve got yourself a great meal.

I don’t know about you guys, but I prefer having my vegetables all mixed up together with a dressing or binding sauce, rather than eating everything separately. My mother used to cook Sunday lunch like that every week; She would make creamed spinach, pumpkin, green beans and mashed potatoes and glazed carrots.

Don´t get me wrong, these were always great dishes, but after 10000 Sundays of eating everything separately, I much now prefer eating everything together with one great sauce.

I usually make my power bowls with vegetables that taste nice when they are roasted, carrots, sweet potato, potato, and red onions. Then I will steam green beans in a pot, because they tend to just shrivel up in the oven. My sauce or dressing is usually potato or broccoli puree. They seem to nicely bind everything together.

Back when I was still living in South Africa, I used to make these power bowls with fresh vegetables, but since moving to Germany, some fresh veggies are a little more difficult (and expensive) to come by, so I have been making my bowl with frozen vegetables.

You can definitely taste the difference, but they are just as good, same same but different.

One thing I like to do with these bowls, is to cut and dice all the vegetables the same size. It always looks pretty in pictures when every veggie is cut differently, but it makes it a bit more difficult to take a bite when a sting bean is poking out of the side of your mouth.

It may not look as pretty, but it makes eating it a whole lot easier.

I hope you enjoy making your own power bowls at home.

Stay safe and much love!
