DIY: Fitness Bowl with Peanut Sauce

#1: Do the shopping

Ingredients for 2 portions:

  • bag of Uncle Ben's e.g. 3-grain mix with quinoa
  • 1 bunch of radishes
  • 1 broccoli
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tin of chick peas
  • 3-4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 handful of nuts

Cost per portion: 2,70 €

That's all you need. (No paid partnership with the brands shown in the photo ;))

#2: Do the prep work

Mix 3-4 tablespoons of peanut butter with the juice of half a lime, salt & pepper and some water. Just try out the amount of water, as peanut butter varies in intensity depending on the manufacturer.

Chop the broccoli (I also use the stalk) and fry it in a pan for 2-3 minutes. The browning makes it slightly nutty (yum!). Season with salt, pour on as much water until the bottom of the pan is covered and close the lid so that the broccoli is cooked over the steam. I cooked/steamed the broccoli for a maximum of 3 minutes to remain a little of its crunchiness. Then take out the broccoli of the pan and put it aside (you don't need the water anymore).

Dry the pan and in some oil sauté (olive oil and rapeseed oil are very healthy, for example) the chickpeas that have been drained beforehand. Season with salt and pepper. Let the chickpeas get really crispy. They burst open a little in the pan and will absorb the sauce perfectly.  Now pour half of your peanut sauce into the pan and stir quickly. Otherwise, the sauce will get sticky. Deglaze with the juice of the other half lime and take it off the stove.

Now comes Uncle Ben! Just tear the package of rice open and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes. In the meantime, cut the radishes into slices.

Almost done! Place the rice in the middle of a bowl and arrange all the other ingredients around it. Do not forget the nuts. Finally, pour the rest of the sauce over the ingredients. Bon appetit!

Lets change something!

The Bowl is ideally balanced to provide you with lots of protein (approx. 25 g per serving), valuable vegetables and proteins. You don't like something from the ingredients list or want to try something new? Try chicken or tofu instead of chickpeas. You can vary the vegetables as much as you like and Uncle Ben's has many exciting variations in its range.

Enjoy your meal! :)
