Green Goddess Bowl

GGBowl4

I’ve been craving green things since returning from last week’s vacation. And I found my mind wandering to the Green Bowl I had at Be Love in Victoria. Fresh, clean & vibrant. A perfect bowl to reset feeling moody and sluggish after over indulging while away.

And I was able to use some fresh basil I found at the market this past weekend in the Green Curry Sauce.

I think thai basil would have been better, but sometimes ‘ya gotta work with what you have 😉

Green Goddess Bowl (makes 3 good-sized lunch portions)

1 tbsp of coconut oil
1/2 cup cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 small head of broccoli, trimmed & chopped
3 pieces of baby bok choy, ends trimmed, sliced
1 cup cooked beans (your choice! I used pink beans)
1/4 of an avocado, sliced
1/4 cup of cilantro, trimmed & roughly chopped
1/4 cup of cashews

Green Curry Sauce
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1.5 tsp of green curry paste
2.5 tbsp of coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
1/4 tsp each of garlic & ginger powder

Heat a wok on medium heat on the stove. Add the  coconut oil and sautée the mushrooms until they soften. Add the broccoli and sautée for 3-4 minutes (I added a bit of water to help it cook). Add your bok coy and cook for another 3-4 minutes. While your veggies are cooking, prepare your green curry sauce by whisking all of the ingredients in a bowl. Add the sauce to your cooked veggies and voilà!

I served it over rice and garnished it with cilantro, avocado & cashews.

I originally made this for lunch, but it would make a great supper too. If you have a good tolerance for spice (unlike me!), I would suggest adding more curry paste.

  1. Green curry sauce! Yum! I can’t wait to try this.

    Your pictures are looking so good. :)

    On the way home from the airport I call my favorite Thai place and get the tofu pad see ew. So good! I start craving it when I get on the plane. It’s my comfort food (well one of many).

    1. It’s super yummy! My hiking buddy tried it and she approves =) Thanks for the compliment – definitely getting better pictures from your inspiration!
      I’m not sure I’ve ever had pad see ew, I’ll have to track some down.

  2. I never think of using green curry paste! This really inspired me to do so however and I have added it to my shopping list. It looks delicious!

    1. I have *never* used green curry paste before this dish ;p It is really good! I’m glad I gave it a try. I even found a teeny bottle of Thai Kitchen brand. The stuff can last awhile =)

    1. I hadn’t made it before either – it’s the nice thing about trying new foods at restaurants, it inspires me to get creative at home. You could totally make this in your baby kitchen haha!

  3. Looks great!
    If I have been away overseas for any length of time the first thing that I will eat when I get home is Vegemite on toast, because sometimes I am very Australian and I miss my salty yeasty delicious spread. 😉 But then I generally move on to something with a lot of greens, to balance out the lack of greens that can come with some decadent holiday eating!

  4. I could get ‘addicted’ to your awesome Green Curry Sauce! I am going to be putting that sauce on so many dishes! Yum!! Thank you for sharing your healthy and delicious Green Goddess Bowl with us on the Plant-Based Potluck Party Link Up. I’m pinning and sharing.
