I'm not vegan, but I absolutely love incorporating vegetarian or vegan meals into my life, daily! If you do it right, you can absolutely get enough protein from a vegetarian or vegan meal. Legumes are a forgotten food group... but they provide you with a hearty dose of protein and carbohydrates. So, make legumes your friend!
Time: 20 minutes
1/2 an Avocado
1 Tomato, diced
1/2 - 2/3 C of Kale
1 tbsp of Coconut oil
Pinch of Chilli flakes
Cauliflower rice (recipe coming soon!)
6 Button Mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp of butter (or coconut oil for vegan alternative)
1/3 C of Chickpeas
1 tbsp of Sesame oil
Rinse and tear the kale and place in a fry pan with tablespoon of coconut oil and a pinch of chilli flakes. Cook on a low heat for 2-4 minutes.
In the meantime, slice and dice the tomato and place it in the bowl, along with half an avocado - straight out of the skin.
Slice the mushrooms and set to one side.
Drain and rinse the chickpeas (but keep the liquid, and place in a separate container for the chickpeas you don't use).
By now the kale should be ready, take it from the fry pan straight to your bowl and place it alongside the tom's and avo.
Using the same fry pan (don't worry about rinsing!), place a tablespoon of butter (or coconut oil) and add in the mushrooms. Leave to cook for 3-4 minutes.
Add the pre-made cauliflower rice to the bowl.
Once the mushrooms are cooked, place them in the bowl.
Sprinkle the chickpeas across the whole bowl and drizzle with sesame oil.
