SPICY CAULIFLOWER POWER BOWL

This bowl changed into not alleged to be the recipe I posted these days. I completely had any other {equally delicious} recipe scheduled and equipped to move and existence become exact.

To begin with, they’re incredible highly spiced— without being hearth-in-your-mouth spicy— that is the high-quality form of spicy (in my thoughts). Secondly, they’re severely flavorful. think of it as a mixture between buffalo wings and coconut curry. That sounds brilliant bizarre, however accept as true with me, they’re notable.

Ever on the grounds that I made those sandwiches, we’ve been certainly passionate about them here at my residence. To the point in which Nate has deemed them his actual favorite food (a little historical past: he says that about 5 times every week about a slew of different things, however these, apparently, are his actual favored). however we don’t love consuming a variety of bread in our weight loss plan, so I knew I had to insert this cauliflower goodness into another complete grain dish.

After a few weeks of throwing a few thoughts around, I sooner or later settled on those scrumptious, healthy quinoa power bowls. for the reason that cauliflower is SO flavorful, why no longer blend it up with some fantastic nutritious components? I’ve told you before I’m not a huge kale fan, however I sautéed a few up and it without a doubt went beautifully with this dish. I additionally added in some cooked chickpeas for protein, diced avocado as that creamy, cooling agent, and a few chopped parsley on top only for a bit of freshness. It’s that best blend of flavors and textures, all in one beautiful protein-packed bowl!.
