Falafel Bowl

You know when you find a stack of different leftovers in the fridge, and just throw them in a bowl together. Doesn’t it often end up better than the original meal? That was definitely the case here. Spicy potato wedges, crispy falafel, oven baked Greek salad, hummus, tzatziki and baby spinach. Dreamy!

Ginger Miso Ramen

I’ve been dreaming of this bowl of vegan ramen since I ate it. I had a day at home where I could let the broth simmer on the stove for hours and hours, and it really paid off. I improvised, as usual, and used what I had at hand. Onions, garlic, ginger, mushrooms, carrots, lots of miso, brown sugar, soy sauce and water. I stirred once in a while and added more water, and when it was time to eat I added sesame seed oil, lime juice and a little more soy. The broth was so rich and packed with umami, and absolutely delicious.

I prepped bowls with noodles, baby corn, green soy beans, fried tofu, steamed broccoli, bean sprouts, thinly sliced carrot and fresh mint leaves. Then I poured the hot broth over the vegetables at the table and sprinkled with black sesame seeds. Best meal in a long time!

Mushroom & Spinach Bibimbap

I’m really into Asian flavours at the moment, and this Korean bibimbap is a favourite. This recipe is @welldonesthlm ‘s cookbook “Vego på 30 minuter” (only available in Swedish as far as I know).
A quick breakdown of the bowl:
* mix of jasmine and black rice
* sliced mushrooms with garlic and spinach
* kimchi
* avocado
* cucumber
* vegan mayo
* dressing with soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and agave syrup
* black and white sesame seeds

Tomato Bulghur Salad

I can’t describe how much I long for tomato season! I know, it’s like six months away. I found this mix with plum, yellow, purple and red baby tomatoes, and couldn’t resist it. Just cut them in half and combined them with cooked bulghur, green lentils, sunflower seeds, Kalamata olives and fresh basil. A drizzle of good quality olive oil, a dash of white vinegar and salt and pepper was all the dressing it needed. Lovely quick lunch salad!

Tofu Bowl with PB Sauce

Bowls are my go to when I’m out of meal ideas. It’s so easy to just start with a carb like rice, potatos, or in this case bulghur, and then add some protein like beans, lentils, soy mince, or in this case some tofu cubes and green soy beans, and then add your greens. I used cucumber, bean sprouts and purple cabbage. Add herbs and spices, like coriander, mint and chili in this case.

And when you think you’re all set, it’s time for the best bit – the dressing! This one is inspired by @glowingly.well, one of my best friends here on IG, who had posted a lunch prep literally just minutes before I logged on to look for some inspo. Check her feed out! And then make this incredibly yummy peanut butter lime dressing. As usual I have modified the recipe from what I had at hand.

1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp Japanese soy sauce
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
Stir all the ingredients together and add a dash of water if you want a runnier dressing. Pour generously on top of your bowl.

Falafel & Roast Potato Bowl

I hadn’t had falafel in ages, and I got such a craving for it! I made the loveliest bowl with falafel (not homemade – I really need to start doing that!), oven roasted potatoes with a spicy rub, cucumber, avocado, purple cabbage coleslaw and spiralized carrots. Already dreaming of making this again!

Buddha Bowl

I’m trying to up my iron intake, so I try to eat lots of cruciferous veg, leafy greens, beans and lentils and always combine it with something rich in vitamin C. So here’s a real power bowl for you:
• Shredded kale, massaged in olive oil, lemon juice and salt
• Whole bulghur
• Green lentils
• Grated carrots
• Dried cranberries
• Pomegranate arils
• Parsley, lemon and olive oil dressing

I feel stronger already!

Mango Peanut Curry

I don’t make curries often enough! And when I finally did, apparently I forgot to write down the recipe… This sweet and spicy curry roughly includes onion and garlic, red curry paste, coconut milk, peanut butter, mango chutney, potatoes and carrots, lime and fresh mango. I served it with basmati rice, green soy beans, coriander and salted peanuts. Definitely need to recreate this one and measure it properly this time!

Rye Porridge with Fruit

It’s been a while since I posted a breakfast. Now that the sun is finally back and the mornings are light enough for photography, I want to kick off this week with a bowl of rye porridge. I made it with rolled rye flakes, the same way you make oatmeal, and added a couple of tbsp of shredded coconut. When cooked, I stirred in a tbsp flax seeds, and topped it with kiwi, strawberry, coconut flakes and passion fruit and a splash of cold oat milk.

Sweet Potato & Avocado Bowl

How is it that salads taste even better served in a bowl? This was a particularly good one that I made last week. Whole bulgur (my favourite grain!), roasted sweet potato wedges, sugar snaps, blueberries, avocado, green baby leaves, honeydew melon and a handful of almonds. I drizzled it with a tahini lemon dressing, and it was heavenly!
