Goodness Bowl

Updated: Jan 6


I love Buddha bowls or as I like to call them goodness bowls.  What I love about these plant-based dishes is that you can add anything you like as long as they have the key factors of plant-based proteins, carbohydrates and fibre. I wanted to share with you what I put in my goodness bowls. you can make big batches of the ingredients and have them all week pick and choose what you want to put in your bowl or even make mini goodness bowls to take to work or school for filling lunches. they will be sure to give you that extra kick of energy for last hours at the office or classroom.

I uploaded this recipe on my youtube channel if you would like to watch it will be below this recipe


You will need:

Pumpkin                                           

4 slices of kent pumpkin                       

1 tsp coconut sugar                                

1 tsp cinnamon powder                          

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp olive oil


Brussels Sprouts

1 handful of Brussle Sprouts

1 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves crushed garlic

1/4 tsp salt

pinch of cracked black pepper

half lemon juiced


Beetroot

2 beetroots

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp salt

pinch of pepper


Kale Chips

1 bunch of kale

1 tbsp olive oil 

1/4 tsp salt 

pinch of pepper


Everything Else

1 cup quinoa

1 cup vegetable stock

1 avocado

1 mango cheek (cut into stars for decoration- star cookie cutter optional)

A handful of salad mix (rocket/baby spinach)

1 cup purple cabbage shredded

1 lime juiced


How to make:

Preheat the oven to 200°c, to make the pumpkin seasoning in a small bowl add the coconut sugar, cinnamon, paprika and salt mix until well combined. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the baking tray and rub the oil into the kent pumpkin slices, making sure they are fully covered leave the slices on the tray. Sprinkle the seasoning to both sides of all 4 pumpkin slices. Set this aside as we will use the same baking tray for the brussels sprouts and beetroots

In a small bowl, add a tablespoon of olive oil,  crushed garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice mix well. Add the Brussels sprouts and coat the sprouts in the oil mixture; transfer over to the baking tray and pour any remaining oil mixture over the Brussels sprouts.

In another bowl add a tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the beetroots to the oil and rub the oil till they are completely covered; transfer over to a sheet of foil and pour the remaining oil in the bowl over the beetroot and wrap the beetroot in the foil and place on the baking tray. 

Place the baking tray into the oven for 45 min or until the pumpkin is tender.

If you have a rice cooker like me this makes cooking the quinoa a breeze. if not you will have to google how to cook it on the stove.

Add one cup of white quinoa to the rice cooker with the vegetable stock and 2 cups of water and let it cook.

To make the Kale chips,  rip the leaves off the storks and place them to a bowl or strainer and wash the leaves under running water; Transfer the leaves to a clean tea towel, roll the leaves into the towel and scrunch the leaves dry (scrunching the leave will help breaking down the tough leaves and bringing out the taste). transfer the leaves back into a bowl and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and massage the leaves into the oil and transfer to a baking tray. Place the tray in the oven for 20 minutes or until crispy.

In a small bowl add the shredded purple cabbage and add the juiced lime and massage the lime juice into the cabbage this will help it brake down into a more softer and easier to eat.

On a chopping board cut the avocado in half, each bowl will have a half each. 

if you want to make cute stars with your mango (totally optional) Slice the cheek again to make two halves one half will need scooping the flesh from the skin, I like to use a wine glass; press the cookie cutters into the mango to make the stars- if you don’t have or want to buy cookie cutter you can just make cubes.

Now to ensemble your bowls I like to put the quinoa on the bottom as a base and build from there. you can watch my video below on how I put them together.

Also at the end of the video there is a recipe for beetroot hummas xx
