If you haven’t been eating your vegetables lately and need to get yourself back down to earth with an infusion of greens, try this bowl.
This looks simple, and it is, but what you can’t see in the pictures is the lemon garlic glaze that gives a subtle and delicious flavour to everything. This may look like a pretty plain bowl of greens, but it doesn’t taste like it!
Twelve cups of greens for two people might seem like a lot, but don’t worry, it cooks down to a reasonable portion.
|1 bowl||ice water|
|1 tbsp||olive oil|
|1/2 cup||vegetable stock|
|2 tbsp||Earth Balance or other vegan butter|
|2 tsp||lemon juice|
|to taste||sea salt|
|to taste||freshly ground black pepper|
|12 cups||chopped mixed leafy greens (e.g.kale, bok choy, Swiss chard, dandelion greens)|
|2 cups||cooked brown basmati rice|
|2 tbsp||Protein Boost (see below)|
|2 tbsp||walnut halves|
|6||grilled tofu steaks (see below)|
This mix of nuts and seeds is my favourite combo, but just go with whatever you have on hand. You don’t need to go out of your way to get these exact ingredients – just use it as a general guideline for creating your own mix.
|2 tbsp each:|
|raw pumpkin seeds|
|raw sunflower seeds|
|flax seed meal|
|finely chopped brazil nuts|
|finely chopped hazelnuts nuts|
|finely chopped cashew pieces|
|finely chopped pistachios|
Grilled Tofu Steaks
These tofu steaks go well on everything: salads, bowls, tacos, wraps, sandwiches… At the restaurants we grill them, but at home you can either cook them under the broiler, on a panini grill, on a barbecue, or in a frying pan with some oil.
Yield: 12-16 steaks, depending on the size of your block of tofu.
|1||block firm tofu (350-450g)|
|2 tbsp||ground coriander|
|4 tsp||garlic powder|
