Last week we had the Bohemian Bowl with chili roasted squash, broccoli, chickpeas and lemony tahini dressing. A pretty basic bowl recipe and maybe not astounding but tasty and super healthy. I felt the tahini dressing had a bit more ingredients than totally necessary but Mr Moon really loved it so what do I know. Had these on wild/brown rice blend. Super healthy feeling and my fiber needs were more than met for days.
Friday night I made the Banquet Bowls with red lentil dal, rice and cauliflower pilaf and raita. Used coconut milk kefir instead of yogurt and that was the only swap I needed. This was a bit labour intensive and I thought the rice was a huge fail and first as I had a lot of pot stickage and some black stuff on the bottom. This was probably more of a rice age issue combined with handler error, but I saved the rice and the flavours were so nice. She definitely relies on your pre-made curry powder of choice so use something you know you like. The dal was probably not super authentic but man, it tasted great. I had these leftovers for breakfast two days in a row and each time wasn't hungry until well into the afternoon. https://www.instagram.com/p/BKKC4aAhlMn/
Secret hidden perk of this book is that things seem to make the amount of portions she recommends. I hate making a recipe that serves four only to find no, no it does not. Even with Mr Moon's large portions we've gotten the listed amount of servings on everything, the only exception was the beet pasta.
Also I am thinking about/craving that beet pasta pretty regularly. That is saying A LOT. I do not love beets and do not re-make recipes with any regularity but I want that meal again so badly. The Banquet Bowl's dal is already something I want more of - despite eating it Friday night, Saturday morning and Sunday morning. I've been thinking about it all day today.
