Bowls are my thing! Seriously, I really enjoy throwing some randomly picked food in there, put some sauce and sprinkles on top & stir it around! Sometimes a fantastic bowl sprouts out of this process.
From spicy soups, to sushi bowls, seasonal salad bowls, noodle bowls to breakfast bowls, there are ton of varieties and at the end you get a balanced nourishing meal!
Morning bowls are by far my dearest of them all. Sometimes I fantasize about certain fruits before bed and how I could turn them into a mind blowing breakfast in the morning. And like this savory rainbow bowl, it is the same here. Fruits, superfoods, nuts & seeds – all in one power bowl!
I cannot remember the last time I had a plate infront of me on the breakfast table. And the bowls have changed over the years, it started with regular cereal, to bircher muesli and nowadays its either overnight oats, green smoothie bowls or the one I am presenting today.
The base is like a thick berry pudding which is made in two easy steps. One is soaking overnight and the other one is just blending everything together and then top it with whatever you fancy!
Take what the season offers –
Apples, pears, blueberries, pomegranate seeds, kiwi, mango, banana, blackberries, figs
Add some dried fruit –
Mulberries, figs, apricots, dates
Cacao nibs, chia seeds, raw sprouted nuts & seeds, nut butters, bee pollen, chlorella etc.
RAINBOW MORNING BOWL
makes 1 large bowl / 2 small bowls
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup brazil nuts ( or nut of choice)
2 dried figs
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1-2 cups water
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup frozen blueberries ( or berry of choice)
1/2 ripe banana
Soak everything in a bowl except the berries and banana, cover with water and a few drops of lemon juice. Stir around a few times. Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add the banana and blend it your food processor, then add the frozen berries and process until it becomes a thick pudding/smoothie. Transfer it to your bowl, chop the fresh fruits and figs and add them plus the rest of the toppings.
Enjoy your rainbowl!
A quick note how to get the pomegranate seeds without making a mess –
cut it in half over a large bowl, fill it part way with water and press with your fingers against the rind to reverse the bowing so it is exposing the seeds. Then hold it under water and use your fingers to pry away the seeds. The membrane will float to the top and the seeds sink to the ground. Simply skim the membranes and rinse the seeds.
A huge bowl full of love,
