Raw Vegetable Bowl

The raw vegetable bowl contains an abundance of fresh vegetables, filling and nutritious plant-based protein, healthy fats, and delicious spices.

There are also many variations to this dish, which make it a quick and easy go-to meal.

Remember it’s best to just keep it simple — it’s healthier for you and your body!

I put this meal together in about 5 minutes with vegetables that I had on hand — you can’t beat that for days when you’re either too busy or too tired to even think about fixing a big meal, or even when you’re not. Since I used only a good knife, cutting board, and a couple of measuring devices, cleanup took about the same amount of time.

Raw Vegetable Bowl

Items Needed: knife, cutting board, measuring spoons & cups

Ingredients

  • ½ medium zucchini, chopped
  • ½ medium carrot, chopped
  • ½ avocado, chopped
  • ¼ small purple onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tbsp shelled hemp seeds (hearts)
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • ⅛ tsp garlic powder
  • Celtic sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • Drizzle olive oil

Method

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, making sure to incorporate well. Serves 1. Enjoy! 

Variations

  • Replace carrot with sweet potato or corn
  • Replace seeds with a small zucchini blended with some pine nuts and Italian seasoning to use as dressing
