Miso Beet and Quinoa Budha Bowl -

I’m really into Budha Bowls lately! A giant bowl of food that usually starts with some grains, lots of veggies and some form of protein. In this one I use yellow beets as well as the greens attached to them and lots of chickpeas in a miso dressing. For the grains here I chose to mix my quinoa with bulgur as the combo is just super fluffy and nutty!

  • Prep.:  30 min
  • Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Cooked Quinoa
  • ½ Cup Bulgur (No. 3)
  • 1 Can Chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 4 Yellow Beets
  • 1 Cup Fresh Beet Greens
  • 1/2 Cup Sprouted Lentils (Optional)
  • 1/2 Cup Yellow Miso
  • 4 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • ½ Tsp. Fresh Ginger, grated
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Water

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F (205 C).
  2. Separate the greens from the beets (but do not discard the greens). To cook the beets, wrap tightly in foil and bake at 400 F for about 1 hour.
  3. To make the sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the miso with the maple syrup, ginger, coconut milk and water. Mix well until everything is combined and slightly warm.
  4. To prepare the bulgur: Rinse thoroughly and then place in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow to sit for about 15 minutes until the water is absorbed. Set aside.
  5. In a skillet over medium high heat, add in the beet greens and top with 2-3 Tbsp. of the prepared miso sauce. Saute for about 5 minutes until tender. Remove the beet greens from the skillet and set aside. Using the same skillet, raise heat to medium high and immediately add in the chickpeas with a couple more tablespoons of the prepared miso sauce. Cook for 3 minutes until the sauce reduces completely and chickpeas are slightly browned. Set aside.
  6. For the grains: Combine the cooked quinoa with the soaked bulgur and add a touch more sauce. Mix well.
  7. To assemble the bowls: divide the grains among 2 bowls. Arrange the beets, beet greens, chickpeas and sprouts on top of the grains on each bowl. Drizzle with remaining miso sauce and dig in!
