We call this the boost bowl because it is packed with fuel and healthy ingredients and gives your body a break from animal protein. If you've been slacking on your vegetable intake this is a great way to make up for it. Or you can always add this as a side dish or appetizer to any meal! This is a vegan/vegetarian meal that even the meat lovers in my family adored. Everyone went back for seconds. It's filling, very nutritious, and also makes a fantastic side dish. We're trying to eat more clean foods lately and cut down on animal protein so we are happy to report that this was extremely satisfying! This dish was largely inspired by an amazing new restaurant called Makro in Montreal. Not only do they have a great speakeasy, but the food was incredible. Fresh and healthy. We had octopus and a brussel sprout side dish that was SO delicious. We recommend going there and making this recipe at home. Happy cooking!
