Recipe

Summer Feast Bowl

Portion: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 cups cooked rice (I use a mix of brown basmati and wild rice to keep it light) 
  • 1 cup mixed berries & cherries; raspberries, blackberries, cherries
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 stone fruit; peach, nectarine
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chickpeas
  • 1-2 cups mixed salad greens; pea shoots, rocket
  • 1 tbsp seeds

Basil Pesto: 

  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced (1 tbsp)
  • Pinch of unrefined salt & black pepper
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp oil (avocado, virgin olive oil)
  • 1 cup fresh basil

Instructions:

  1. I had some pre-made rice (a mix of brown basmati and wild rice). Cook your rice per packet instructions.

    .

  2. In a blender, add your pesto ingredients and blitz. If you don’t have a blender, you can chop your walnuts and basil finely and mix. To toast your walnuts, place them in a dry frying pan and stir for a few minutes on medium heat. 

    .

  3. Slice your stone fruit and avocado, and halve your cherry tomatoes if you wish.

    .

  4. Once cooked, add your rice to a bowl. Place the greens on top, followed by your berries, cherries, tomatoes, stone fruit, avocado and chickpeas. 

    .

  5. Spoon over your pesto and sprinkle your seeds on top (these are nice toasted).
