If I was stuck on a deserted island with zero food (plenty of water) and I was granted one single ‘food’ wish it would be to make this vegan tempeh buddha bowl for me 3 x per day, every day. It’s as delicious as it looks and provides your cells with an incredible rush of nutrients. It really is one of the best meals to power up your Space Suit. When you begin to eat foods like this on the regular, and cut out the food groups that do the wrong thing by our system, I promise you will start to understand what it really feels like to be healthy…to really understand what it feel like to thrive.
I know you are reading this page for the recipe but I ask you to consider one important message.
The cure is the prevention. And prevention starts with our food. Looking at that list above, and knowing how delicious and simple this meal is to make, excites me about how we can better the health of this planet by simply improving our understanding of what true health is and making more informed food choices.
Do you think the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world like Bayer who make billions by medicating cattle and humans (a cycle of illness that lines their pockets with money) want us to make informed food choices and look to food as the real source of medicine? They profit from our sickness. Something to think about for the week.
Happy cooking – remember to tag @plant_proof into any of your creations so I can see your creations!
This bowl is raw except the Tempeh, Sweet Potato and Brown Rice so start by peeling the sweet potato and then cutting into wedges. If you like a mild spice taste add some cumin and then put these into the oven on baking paper to bake for 30-45 min until lightly crispy before they start turning brown/black.
After about 10-15 min of the sweet potato cooking get your rice going so that they are both finished around the same time.
10 min before serving slice the tempeh into slices approx 1cm thick and lightly pan fry. Season with Pink salt, pepper and cumin. If you have a good non stick pan it's best add a tiny bit of coconut or olive oil but very sparingly to keep unnecessary saturated fats down.
Once the tempeh, sweet potato and rice are ready you can plate up the vegetables and decorate. The Cashew Cheese,hemp seeds, jalapeños and mung beans are the final toppings to go on top.
Squeeze lime over the top for flavour and to maximise nutrient absorption.
