You probably have already noticed a #Buddhabowl all over social medias. Basically it is a bowl of grains, fresh or cooked vegetables some toppings and a dressing. A really good healthy and balanced dish.
So here is my variation of this dish – Vegan Brown Rice Buddha Bowl with a little Asian twist to add extra flavour kick. Quick easy and filling lunch to take to work!
Prep time:Cooking time:Serves:
150g Brown Rice
100g Cherry Vine Tomatoes
150g Cooked Beetroot
1tsp Coriander Seeds
1tbsp Sherry Vinegar
60ml Olive Oil
1 tsp Sugar
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Gochujang
1tsp Soya Sauce
1 Large Avocado
1. Preheat the oven to 180C or 355F degrees.
2. First of all, lets cook the rice. The proportion of water to brown rise that works for me is 1.5 parts of water to 1 part of rice. For this recipe it is approx. 230ml of water. Simmer for 20min.
3. While rice is cooking, prepare the rest of the vegetables. Sprinkle tomatoes and mushrooms with a little bit of olive oil and put in the oven for 15min to roast.
5. Next shred the carrots. Carrot is going to be marinated. Add coriander seeds, sherry vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, salt and gochujang to the shredded carrots. In a small pan bring the olive oil to a very high temperature. Be careful and extra cautious. Pour the oil over the carrots and set aside.
6. Boil the mangetout for few minutes so the get a little softer but still crunchy.
7. Peel and slice the avocado. Use a splash of lemon juice to prevent avocado from going dark.
8. Put the cooked rice into the bowl, arrange the vegetables on top and use the marinate from the carrots as a dressing. Serve warm or cold.
I usually add some black wild rice to my regular or brown rice.
It has got a lot of health benefits for your digestive system, immune system and overall wellbeing.
Gochujang – is a traditional Korean paste used to spice up stir-fry’s and soups.
Add it to your kimchi for a nice kick. But don’t panic, if you cannot find it just add some red hot pepper instead.
Just like in many countries around the world, there is a pancake day in Russian and it is called “Maslenytsa”.
