I have to admit, I’m such a Bowl lover – Breakfast bowls and Dinner bowls are always my favorite thing. And I’m also the biggest fan of Asian food – anyone else?! So I decided to combine my two favorite things in one meal! Vegan Thai Buddha Bowl!! This was the best ever.
For my Buddha Bowl, I used a vegan “Chicken Schnitzel” substitute by the dutch brand “Vivera” (*ad) which is a 100% vegan brand – producing meat substitutes. To be honest, I didn’t find any good meat alternatives before but this one was crazy delicious! I’m so happy that there is a brand, producing such good products, because some people really don’t want to renounce the taste of meat. This is such a good way to reduce the meat consume! Even my dad loved this one and he is very critical when it comes to meat alternatives! Also, this “Chicken Schnitzel” substitute is rich in protein and includes Vitamin B12 and Iron.
And now… lets jump to the recipe! I created a simple, nourishing and flavorful Buddha bowl with a super yummy peanut sauce!
Looking at those Fotos, I could dive straight into that bowl again hehe – all those yummy goodies!
For the Peanut Sauce:
- 1/2 cup peanut butter natural, unsalted
- 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut milk
- 1 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- a piece of fresh ginger to taste
For two Bowls:
- mixed green leaf salad
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 red onion
- fresh berries, 1 fig
- a handful natural peanuts, a sprinkle of sesame seeds
- 2 “Chicken Schnitzel” (“Vivera” *ad)
- opt. fresh coriander
- Preheat your oven to 225 degree celsius.
- In the meantime, add all the ingredients for the peanut sauce to a blender and blend until creamy. You might need to add a splash more water or some more peanut butter if it turns out too thick/ liquid for you.
- Now, place the “Chicken Schnitzel”on a baking tray and bake for about 6 minutes on each side.
- Now, wash your salad, cut your fruits and veggies and add them to your bowls.
- Add a pan to the stove and roast your nuts and seeds until golden brown.
- When the “Schnitzel” is ready, cut it into stripes and add to your salad bowls. Sprinkle the crunchy nuts and seeds on top and optional add your coriander. Serve with your yummy peanut sauce.
