Soul Bowl

You’ve probably seen this meal (or a variation of it) at a million cutesy vegan cafes.
Or, even just as a veg option on a regular menu.

It’s super simple and inexpensive to create in your own kitchen, and one of my top picks for summery meals.

Soul Bowls are perfect for lunch or dinner, as they’re a great blend of refreshing raw greens with cooked grains and veggies. 


Greens: I like spinach, but this is really up to you
Quinoa: I like tricolored
Sweet Potato
Alfalfa Sprouts
Hummus (make your own!)
Shelled Hemp Seeds
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper


-Cut sweet potato in chunks: set on a baking tray with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
*bake at 210 C for roughly 40 minutes, or until soft/to your liking

-Boil water for quinoa: put quinoa in the water when ready 
*serving size is up to you

-Once potatoes and quinoa are nearly ready, then pan-fry cauliflower, broccoli, and asparagus with olive oil, salt, and pepper
*we like spice, so we added a dash of Cayenne Pepper here

-Let sweet potato, quinoa, and mixed veggies cool

-Put a bed of greens (your choice) as the base layer of your bowl

-Add sweet potatoes with a drizzle of tahini over the top

-Add mixed veggies over potatoes with a scoop of hummus on the side for dipping
*make your own hummus!

-Add avocado and sprouted alfalfa seeds (we drizzled hot sauce here too)
Sprinkle shelled hemp seeds over the top


Soul Bowls are a well-rounded meal that are delicious and nutritious! With a healthy blend of fresh greens, you get plenty of iron. Quinoa is a great option for grains because it is gluten free, and a great source of protein and fiber. Sweet potatoes are also rich in fiber, as well as iron and calcium. Plus, they keep you full for long periods of time. 
The mixed veggie blend offers a variety of vitamins, minerals, and supports digestion. Alfalfa sprouts offer a concentrated mix of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Calcium. 
Avocados are a great source of healthy fats, which is literal brain food. Tahini is not only a great substitute for salad dressing, but it’s also a wonderful option for supporting liver function (lots of Methionine). 
Hummus offers additional protein and iron to the meal, and is also easier to digest than whole chickpeas.  Shelled hemp seeds offer a great source of Omega 3, as well as healthy fats and amino acids.
