Buddha Bowl For 2
I made this incredibly healthy and nourishing 'Buddha Bowl for 2' that day before my big farmers market shop. What's on this plate is literally everything I had left in my fridge! I had 3 eggs left in the carton, some cauliflower rice and 2 sausages leftover from the previous nights dinner of paleo fried rice, 1 perfect avocado (lucky me), herbs, chilli, garlic, 1 lemon, 1/2 a cucumber and a couple of handfuls of leafy greens. Thats it!
This bowl is what I managed to scrounge up with little to no ingredients left in my fridge. This recipe is proof that you can create something out of nothing. It took all of 10 minutes and it was absolutely delicious! Nutrition is not low-fat, its not low-calorie, its not depriving yourself and being hungry (or hangry), It's nourishing your body with real, whole foods so that you are constantly feeling satisfied and energised so you can live your life to the fullest!
Now go make this for your other half or invite your sister, mother, brother or best friend over and enjoy every mouthful together. Food should be fun and enjoyed in/ with the company of others :)
- 2x pastured eggs
- A dash of apple cider vinegar
- 2x paleo sausages, pre-cooked (I used a spicy lamb sausage)
- 1 cup cauliflower rice
- Ghee or butter for cooking
- 1 avocado, sliced (i sliced mine into a rose)
- ¼ cucumber, sliced
- 2 handfuls organic leafy greens
- A drizzle of brain octane oil on top (this is optional)
Garnish with; fresh herbs, sliced chilli, sliced spring onions, a wedge of lemon, salt and pepper to taste, cultured vegetables
1. Heat a frying pan to medium heat.
2. Bring a small pot of water to boil on a medium heat and add the dash of apple cider vinegar.
3. Meanwhile, while you wait for the water to boil, add 1-2 Tbsp of the ghee and allow it to melt all over the frying pan. Now add the cauliflower rice and cook for a few minutes, or until desired.
4. Place the leafy greens onto a plate or large bowl.
5. When the cauliflower rice is ready, place it onto the plate alongside the leafy greens.
6. Add the sausages to the same frying pan to reheat them and fry for a few minutes.
7. The water should be boiling now, so crack an egg and drop it into the boiling water and poach it to your liking (I left my yolk a little runny). When it's ready, remove the egg with a slotted spoon and plate it onto a plate lined with paper towel so it can drain the excess water away.
8. Repeat the above poached process with the remaining egg.
7. When the eggs and sausages are ready, begin to arrange all of the ingredients on the plate and make them look as appealing as you like!
8. Sprinkle your garnishes on top, then serve and enjoy every mouthful with a friend or your other half!
