Meal of Steel: Mighty Macro Bowl. {Recipe}

emporer bowl

I finally made it into the highly recommended Life Alive Cafe in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

It is a vegan/fully raw/vegetarian’s utopia, and needless to say, a new favorite. Don’t be intimidated by the long line or the overwhelming selection on the menu—it is well worth it all, I promise!

I loved what I ordered  so much that I decided to create my own interpretation. My “Mighty Macro Bowl” was inspired by Life Alive Cafe’s Emperor Bowl—quite similar, with a few added and swapped ingredients tossed in my very own homemade sauce.

If you were only able to eat one dish for the rest of your life, this would [should] be it. Everything you need to keep a sustained and healthy diet in one bowl. Macro heaven!

The Recipe:

2 c. Cooked Brown Rice

1 c. Cooked Lentils

1 c. Steamed Kale

1 c. Sweet Corn

1 c. Green Peas

1 c. Shredded Carrots

1/2 c. Sliced Cherry Tomatoes

1 Avocado

2 Tbsp. White Miso

3 Tbsp. Tahini

1 Lemon, juiced

Minced Ginger (as much as you like…)

1. Whisk Miso-Ginger Tahini Sauce ingredients together (White Miso, Tahini, Lemon Juice, Minced Ginger).

2. Toss all other ingredients together with sauce until everything is coated evenly. I usually do this in a large skillet or a wok on low heat.

3. Place into a bowl or on a plate and add as much avocado as you’d like to top it off (I used half of one here).

It’s a very simple dish where you can throw all of the ingredients together and maybe even get a little more creative with other ingredients you have in your fridge/pantry. I like to make a lot so that I have leftovers for the rest of the week.

Enjoy! Your body will thank you for a deliciously balanced dish.
