Lunch / Dinner

The Pizza Diet.

So you love pizza?

Want to eat it every day?

Go ahead 🙂

Because, my pizza is…img_3047

What else do you need?

Let’s start with the crust. You want one that is sprouted & high in fiber & protein.

I like Angelic Bakehouse’s 7-Grain Flattzzaimg_2855

Now for my favorite, 2-ingredient sauce.

  • You will need: 1) Organic Tomato Paste 2) Thai Curry Paste (I usually buy red but have used green as well).
  • Simply combine a ratio of 2:1 tomato paste to curry paste in a small bowl.img_2857

Fire up your grill or oven, spread your crust with the 2-ingredient sauce & load on the veggies!

Here are some combinations I like!

  • Spriralized Beets, Cranberry Goat Cheese, Mushrooms, Peppersimg_3042
  • Beets, Shredded Zucchini, Pepper, Almond Cheeseimg_3037
  • Beets, Zucchini Blossoms, Mushrooms, Basil, Nutritional Yeastimg_2868

Grill/ bake according to crust instructions. Usually around 400F for 10-15 minutes!

Also, if you don’t have a pizza stone, I highly recommend 🙂

Falafel Buddha Bowl

Veganism is not only cruelty free to animals but to the environment & your health as well.  3 simple & awesome reasons to go plant-based.  Seriously, what other convincing would someone need?!

I loveee Buddha Bowls. If you’ve never heard the term, let me explain. In essence, it is a plant-based overstuffed bowl resembling the belly of Buddha. These bowls are loaded with proteins (no meat obviously), grains, & vegetables – either raw or roasted. Similar terms you may see for these types of meals are hippie-bowls, nourish-bowls, macro-bowls, etc.

Buddha bowls can be very easy & fast to make. I made this bowl on the weekend so was excited to have extra time to bake up some healthy lentil & quinoa filled falafels!

Falafel Buddha Bowl

  • Servings: 2-3
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print

Ingredients

Falafels:

  • 1/2 c red lentils
  • 1/2 c rainbow quinoa
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 long flat kale leaves or a handful of baby kale
  • 2 T chopped cilantro
  • 2 T chopped onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • Ground pepper to taste

Beet Hummus:

  • 1 can chickpeas (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 small roasted beet, chopped
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Small handful cilantro
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Pea Mash:

  • 1 can organic peas (drained & rinsed)
  • Handful of fresh basil
  • 2 T or more of nutritional yeast/ nooch

Dressing:

  • 1/4 block firm tofu
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Small handful cilantro
  • Just enough unsweetened almond milk to get smooth consistency

Tortilla chips

  • 2 low carb, high fiber & protein tortillas
  • Taco Seasoning (I like FlavorGod)

Fillers:

  • Wasabi Seaweed/ Nori Chips (I bought these)
  • Diced tomato
  • Nutritional yeast/nooch

Directions

Falafels:

  1. Cook the lentils & quinoa according to direction.
  2. Once lentils are cooked add to a food processor with the rest of the falafel ingredients, except for the quinoa. Process & stir until all ingredients are combined.
  3. Mix in the cooked quinoa.
  4. Let mixture cool so as not to burn your hands & then role an ice cream scooper size amount of dough into a ball.
  5. Place on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper & bake at 425 degrees for 16-20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Beet Hummus:

  1. Simply add all ingredients to a clean food processor.
  2. Processor & stir until combined. I like to leave mine a bit chunky.

Pea Mash:

  1. Simply add all ingredients to a clean food processor.
  2. Processor & stir until combined.

*I used leftover mash that I had made for this veggie sandwich a few days prior & stored in a mason jar in the fridge. Sandwich recipe is on my Instagram page @thekellydiet.

 

Tortillas:

  1. Cut each tortilla into 6 pieces like you would a pizza.
  2. Place on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper.
  3. Sprinkle seasoning on top.
  4. Bake at 425 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until crispy.

Assemble:

  1. Simply add everything to a bowl with desired amounts*. Start with the base of falafels, tortilla chips, tomato & nori sheets.
  2. Top with your hummus & pea mash.
  3. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast.

Remember this is a Buddha Bowl so be generous in your amounts 🙂
