Love yo’self bowl

January 27, 2016

C’mon its all time that we embraced ourselves and worshipped the bodies we were given! This bowl, is a firm favourite of mine and something I could eat for a late breakfast, lunch or dinner quite happily. I call it the ‘love yo’self’ bowl because of all the immune boosting herbs and spices rich in anti-oxidants and the superfoods kale, quinoa, avocado and chickpeas offering fibre, protein, healthy fats, essential vitamins and minerals and further anti-oxidants (to name but a few!)

It helps that ‘eating your greens’ isn’t such a chore anymore with this plate of healthy goodness!

You will need:

1 brown onion

1 clove garlic

sprinkling of chilli flakes

2 cups of roughly chopped kale

10 asparagus spears, heads and ¾ stalk chopped

sprinkling of turmeric

sprinkling of cinnamon

1 ½ cups of cooked quinoa

100g of cooked or tinned chickpeas

4 eggs** (Vegans can use hummus see note)

sprinkling of sesame seeds

1 nori square


1 tbsp olive or coconut oil

1-2 tpsp tamari


  • Cook the quinoa (1 cup of quinoa for 3 cups of water, until absorbed)
  • Boil eggs in a pan until they are how you like them, peel them and leave to one side (I like mine medium boiled)
  • Fry off the onion, garlic and chilli in a pan or wok with the olive/coconut oil
  • Add in the kale and asparagus
  • Add 1 tbsp of tamari and the turmeric and cinnamon, stir-fry for a minute
  • Add the cooked quinoa and chickpeas and the remaining tamari
  • Transfer to dishes and top with the eggs, sesame seeds and slice the nori sheet on top
  • Season to taste


NB: For the vegans out there this is also really tasty with my home-made hummus dolloped on top instead of the eggs…mmmm!
