This is a great throw together salad that can be made in no time if you have the ingredients pre-cooked in your fridge! I try to spend a small amount of time at the start of the week for meal prep so that I can quickly produce something nutritious to eat after class or at lunch when I am in a rush! This makes a great lunchbox idea for those who work in an office also as it’s delicious cold!
Pictured Above is my prepped ingredients in Tupperware boxes
* Batch of Quinoa (150g)
* Roasted Sweet potato / Butternut Squash
* Cooked edamame beans/peas/broadbeans
* Homemade Beetroot and Mint Hummus (you could sub shop bought for time)!
Also needed – fresh coriander, sesame oil and lemon juice!
BEETROOT AND MINT HUMMUS RECIPE:
– Can of Chickpeas
– 2 Cooked Medium Beetroot
(precooked shop bought is fine but if you have more time roasted is even better!)
– 1 Tablespoon of light Tahini
– 3 Cloves of Garlic
– Juice of a lemon 🍋
– Teaspoon of dried mint
– Salt + Pepper
➡️ Blend everything in a food processor!!
TO MAKE THE YOGI BOWL
I simply mix together a helping of the Quinoa, Edamame and Roasted sweet potato! I like to add some fresh coriander with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil and a squeeze of lemon juice! And then pile a heaped tablespoon of Hummus on the side!
A nutritious bowl of plant powered protein!
