Chipotle Nourish Bowl
Flavor and nutrition rarely appear in the same dish, but we have a great way to combine them in one bowl. Check out our recipe for the Chipotle Nourish Bowl, a delicious and nutritious meal that will awaken your taste buds with its smoky and spicy flavors. Packed with wholesome ingredients, this nourish bowl is easy to make and perfect for a satisfying meal that can be enjoyed any time of the day.
To create this flavorful bowl, you'll need a variety of fresh and vibrant ingredients. Begin by combining chopped chipotle peppers, thyme, honey, garlic powder and extra virgin olive oil in a small bowl, stirring them together to create a rich and spicy marinade.
Next, prepare the vegetables by trimming and halving brussels sprouts, chopping red peppers, draining and rinsing garbanzo beans, and chopping cauliflower into florets. In separate bowls, toss each vegetable with a tablespoon of the chipotle marinade, ensuring they are thoroughly coated. Then, arrange the vegetables in a single layer on a lined baking sheet, and roast them in a preheated oven at 450°f for 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and tender, releasing their natural flavors and aromas.
While the vegetables are roasting, whisk together the remaining chipotle peppers, spicy hummus, lime juice and water to create a zesty and creamy dressing that will complement the roasted vegetables perfectly.
Once the vegetables are roasted, it's time to assemble the nourish bowls. Divide the roasted vegetables and cooked brown rice into two separate bowls, creating distinct sections for each ingredient to shine. Drizzle the reserved dressing over the ingredients. Garnish the bowls with sliced green onions, chopped parsley and creamy avocado slices, adding a touch of freshness and color. Season the nourish bowls with ground sea salt and peppercorn to taste, allowing you to customize the seasoning to your preference.
The chipotle nourish bowl is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed as a hearty lunch or dinner option, providing a well-rounded and balanced meal packed with nutrients. The smoky and spicy flavors from the chipotle peppers add a bold kick to the roasted vegetables, while the creamy hummus dressing adds a velvety and tangy finish. The combination of tender brussels sprouts, sweet red peppers, crunchy garbanzo beans, roasted cauliflower and hearty kale, along with the nutty brown rice and creamy avocado, creates a satisfying and wholesome bowl that will keep you feeling nourished and satisfied.
