Steemit-ironchef Round 14: Buddha Bowl and Ramson with Rice- Meal ideas! Ramson Food Serie part 2

in #steemit-ironchef4 years ago (edited)

Hi lovely friends! So today I am back with the second part of my savoury ramson food series! I will give you some ideas for rice meals, with the ramson "wasabi" I showed you in part one.

Challenge yourself

Today I have been a busy bee with taking pictures, developing new recipes and I also made my first live stream (ever!) on instagram. A very exciting day.
This week I am really challenging myself and stepping out of my comfort zone. I do things I have never done before and take the initiative to bring changes into my life, that I wish to have. I can really encourage you to do that too, dont hold yourself back, just go for it. There is nothing to lose, you will just ask yourself why you didnt start earlier. Take your life in your own hands, take the controll of your life situation and form it the way you like. What do you choose: to be secured or happy?

Security or happiness?

So many are just looking for a regular income, for a secure job, a successful career, fulfilling expectations and so on. But what DO YOU WANT? What are you living for? Is your life meaningful and filled with challenging projects that you have choosen and even feel excited about middle in the night when you wake up? Or do you wake up with an ache in your stomach and depressive thoughts? Do you look forward to monday on sunday evening? So why not? And what is the reason you keep telling yourself that you cant change the way it is?

What if?

Imagine you being old and soon going to leave this world how we know it. What would you regret? Have you lived your life how you wanted it to be?
I see and hear people complaining about their situation, the world, other people or them self, and so on, many of us dont realise that we have the power to create our own reality, the way we look at it and what we do.

Who is responsible for your life?

Noone else is responsible for your life. Only you are responsible. Not your partner, not your boss, not your children and not the goverment. There is only you and your thoughts.

So create the world you want. Dont give your power away. You can be whoever you can imagine. And reach the stars, if you just belive in it and decide to go for your goals.
Dont think about HOW, only focus on WHAT, and you will suceed. If you just know what you want, life will show you how to reach it.

Buddha Bowl for inner and outer peace

Do you like Buddha Bowls? I love them because you can add anything you like to the bowl, and its such a simple and healthy meal that gives you all the energy and nutrients you need.

For this one I added avocado, my ramson pesto, celery, baked mushrooms, onion and zucchini, broccoli, raw onion, tomatoes, green asparagus, beans, a homemade turmeric hummus, cucumbers, rice cooked with 1 carrot, some cloves, bay leaves and a little sea salt, and on that lemon juice, chopped walnuts and virgin oilive oil. It was a very delicious meal!

Simple Lunch Boxes

For the lunch boxes (that are great to take with you for work or going out on picnic), I made a milder version of the ramson pesto by blending some ramson leaves with 1 avocado, lemon juice, 1 garlic, and some sea salt to taste.
I also made a very tasty curry tomatoe sauce with baked eggplants. The rice is cooked with lentils to add some extra nutrients and protein. We enjoyed it a lot.

Never forget the greens and the lemon to absorb the iron!;)

So I will just show how simple it is to prepare your lentil rice. I always use wild nature rice that is not as much processed as normal white rice.

You will need:

  • 1 cup nature rice
  • 1/2 cup red lentils
  • water

  • Soak the lentils and rice covered in water for at least one hour.
  • Then wash the rice and lentils until the water is clean and all the starch is removed.

  • Cook the rice and lentils in one pan first on high heat for 2-5 minutes, and then let it simmer on low heat until all the water is absorbed.

  • The rice is ready!

  • Now add your own sauce, vegetables, legumes, ramson pesto and more to your bowls or lunch box. Aaaand ENJOY!

  • Sometimes food just need to be that easy and quick, but be sure it stays healthy! Your body and your children will thank you for that. ;)

Thanks Lena my dear!!;) Have a wonderful friday!

This looks absolutely fantastic and the way you take photos add a lot of aesthetics to the dish making me to wanna grab that bowl of rice in no time!

Oh thank you my dear friend! Such sweet compliments!!!

OMG! I just had dinner and after seeing the bowl in the photos above I thought about eating again. lol

Haha that is always a good sign!!!;)

Your post is wonderful. The Budda bowl looks like heaven! I could look at it forever but if it were in front of me I would have to eat it!

Yes that happened here as well, I didnt have many minutes to take the pictures before my little boy wanted to eat it;)

That's so awesome to hear about little children wanting healthy food. It makes me very happy.

Yes it should be like that for all children right, wanting the healthy and delicious food that actually nourish them and dont give them emply calories. But it is all about habits.

Great post Very wise words! Niina, good luck with the contest!

Thanks lovely!!;) So sweet!

I love your recipes! they look delicious and the best of all healthy!

Thanks so much!! So glad you enjoy my recipes dear;)

A pleasure to read to you! greetings!

Enjoy your friday my dear!

love the look of your dish ... so delicious

Thanks a lot my dear! Thanks for leaving such nice words;)

what a fantastic idea to cook red lentils with rice, looks super tasty! and i like the post with the wasabi, i love making home made sauces, its the only way! what is the yellow looking sauce in the middle of the buddah bowl, dont think u said? or i missed it?

It is my turmeric hummus, actually I just wanted to make some kind of hummus and added a little to much of turmeric to it hehe, but it was good and had a nice yellow colour;)

Nice dish! I often see "Buddha Bowl" on menus, and I'm curious about it. How would you define what a Buddha Bowl is? I like your way of explaining it here:

I love them because you can add anything you like to the bowl, and its such a simple and healthy meal that gives you all the energy and nutrients you need.

Yea thanks my dear! I think Buddha Bowls is a great mixture of cooked and raw ingredients, it is always vegan and contains many colours and nutrients from different kind of planbased foods. It also looks very pretty the way you put it in a bowl, the colours and taste should fit good together and it is a very filling meal that leaves you satisfied for hours;) Thats how I see it! Have you tried some different kind of Buddha Bowls so far? How do you like it?

Yeah, I've tried a Buddha Bowl before and liked it a lot. Yours looks even tastier, to tell you the truth. Yeah, I think your definition seems aligned with what I've seen so far.

Thank you so much for the love and for checking out my delicious Buddha Bowl my friend;) Wish you a great new week!
