Luvo’s bowls are great as is, but with the addition of a few ingredients you can easily transform them into a completely new meal. I challenged myself to do that with a one of my favorite bowl from Luvo’s Planted Power line of products.
I chose the Mighty Masala & Greens Power Bowl. This vegan, gluten-free, non GMO bowl is made up of wholesome brown jasmine rice, delicious green garbanzos, crunchy cabbage, and thinly sliced kale. Nutritionally speaking this bowl packs a serious punch:
- Jasmine rice is produced in Thailand and known for its fragrant aroma. Jasmine rice can be either white or brown, but brown jasmine rice is a whole grain, keeping its bran (the outer shell of the grain), thus reserving more nutrients and dietary fiber.
- Garbanzo beans, like any other peas and beans, are grown in pods on vines. Before they fully ripen, they are bright green in fresh fuzzy pods. At this stage, they are reminiscent of shelled edamame, which can be popped out of the pod and eaten raw, added to stir fried, boiled, or roasted.
- Cabbage and kale are part of the Brassica family, also known as cruciferous vegetables. Besides adding flavor to your meals, these vegetables are packed with antioxidants, which may help lower the risk of various conditions such as cancer and coronary heart disease. They are also rich in vitamins such as vitamin C and folic acid, and minerals such as potassium, iron, and selenium.
Use Luvo’s Mighty Masala & Greens as your base and create create brand new meals.
