You guys have been clamoring for this Mediterranean Power Bowl recipe for over a month now and I’m FINALLY giving it to you. I also totally had to look up how to spell clamoring. Oops. Adulting is hard sometimes.
Anyway. Power bowls are life. People loved the Gluten-Free Power Bowl idea and it’s pretty much how I make every single lunch and dinner – playing Chopped in my kitchen based on what’s in the refrigerator and pantry and hoping the ingredients go well together. This one was a little better planned out and it ended up being REALLY delicious so I figured I would share the recipe with you guys!
Basically, to build a power bowl, you’re combining a few ingredients like you would build a bowl at chipotle, cava, or whatever fast casual place your little heart desires. You start with a base and add:
- some starchy carbohydrates (especially around workouts, or if pregnant, breastfeeding, or find that you are hungry between meals)
- get your veggies on
- add a serving of protein in there for staying power
- healthy fats for satiety and blood sugar balancing (to make sure you don’t get hungry in an hour)
- spice it up with your favorite condiments, spice blends, or add-ons like olives, nuts, etc.
And that’s it! For this Mediterranean Power Bowl, here’s what I threw together:
- BASE: spinach
- VEGGIES: Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower + Tomato Cucumber Salad
- PROTEIN: Tribali Foods Mediterranean Beef Burger
- HEALTHY FATS: 1/2 avocado
- SPICES: Trader Joe’s everything but the bagel seasoning.
For the freaking win, you guys. Sub out whatever protein you have on hand, but this combo was insanely delicious and I’ve been making it again and again. This would also be great with some hummus! Want it after a workout? Throw in some roasted sweet potato.
- 2 cups spinach
- leftover Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower (about ½ - 1 cup)
- leftover Tomato Cucumber Salad (about ½ cup)
- 1 Tribali Foods Mediterranean Beef Burger
- ½ avocado
- Trader Joe's everything but the bagel seasoning, for serving
- First, make the burger: preheat a skillet with a little coconut oil on medium heat and cook the burger from frozen for about 5-6 minutes a side, until cooked through.
- Assemble the rest of the bowl: start with the spinach on the bottom, then add the cauliflower, tomato-cucumber salad, and avocado.
- Once the burger is done, allow it to rest for a few minutes before cutting in - this way all the delicious juices won't spill out!
- Once cut, throw the burger on your power bowl and top with everything but the bagel seasoning, and olives if you like!
