Forget the Buddha bowls and power up with this plate full of plant based goodness!
This makes a great post workout meal with a good mix of healthy carbs, fibre, plant protein and lots of nutrients and antioxidants to help you recover well.
This couldn’t be simpler to make, it takes only 5mins to throw together and makes a great lunch for the next day too. Although I used carrots here you could also use some fresh/cooked peas if you only had these in your fridge/freezer, they also help to up the protein content so don’t be afraid to free style this one with whatever you have in your kitchen at the time.
Optional add ins that I like are chilli powder/flakes to give it a kick and a sprinkle of shelled hemp seeds for omega 3 & 6 fatty goodness!
Recipe (serves 2)
-1 pack of cooked puy lentils (250g)
-2 medium carrots, grated
-approx 140g hummus or just use 2 big dollops!
-2 big handfuls rocket (or greens of choice)
optional: chilli flakes, hemp seeds etc
Simply microwave the lentils according to the packet instructions
While these cook, grate your carrots and start assembling the rest of the ingredients onto plates then add the lentils when they’re ready. Tuck in, knowing that your body is thanking you for this one!
