Vegan Bowl with Creamy Mango Sauce

Vegan Bowl with Creamy Mango Sauce

Lately I’ve been all about making Vegan Bowls. I know that they’re a staple for vegans, but for some reason I’m a little late getting on board. They are actually quite simple to make.

I learned about Vegan Bowls by reading this post by Gabby of The Veggie Nook and thought, “This is brilliant! And easy. I can do this.” A vegan bowl has 4 simple ingredients: a grain, a protein, veggies, and a yummy sauce. Can you imagine just how many different combinations you could come up with? It could be as exotic as Gabby’s Warm Sweet Potato and Quinoa Salad or as boring as seeing what leftover grains and veggies you have in the fridge, tossing on some beans, and saucing it up an olive oil/apple cider vinegar concoction.

Here’s a delicious Mexican Bowl that I enjoyed at New World Cafe.

The magic does seem to be in the sauce. I do love Gabby’s Cashew Cheeze sauce as well as Suzanne’s Dragon Sauce that you can find at Hello Veggie.

Recently I came across a very ripe mango that was begging to bedazzle my next vegan bowl.

So I created a Creamy Mango Sauce that we loved on this bowl filled with a quinoa/rice mixtures, chickpeas, sweet peppers, and carrots.

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
