Gluten-free and vegan recipes are both hearty and healthy recipes for those seeking weight loss. Bowl recipes are among the most preferred options of recent times. Get ready for a perfect meal with red lentils, quinoa, roasted zucchini and carrots, broccoli and lemon tahini sauce!

BOWL INGREDIENTS

For the vegan bowl recipe, you will need:

You need to peel a medium-sized pumpkin and cut it into cubes. 1 carrot will be enough for each bowl. Whether you want more or less is up to you.

One of the highest protein whole grains, quinoa is gluten-free. This adds an excellent nutty flavor to the bowl. It can be precooked for quick preparation of your bowls.

Because it is rich in protein, red lentils, especially preferred by vegans, are also rich in vitamins and minerals. Pre-cooking like quinoa can shorten the preparation time.

Even if the cereals are prepared in advance, fresh vegetables should always be preferred. For this reason, broccoli can be washed and chopped even if it is not cooked beforehand.

It is very easy to make tahini and lemon sauce, which is indispensable for bowls. This recipe, which is prepared in 5 minutes, can be used for 5 days.

HOW TO COOK QUINOA

Quinoa cooked at 1/2 ratio should be cooked for 15 minutes in a covered pot. It would be more appropriate to wait about 5 minutes for the lid to open after being removed from the fire.

HOW TO COOK RED LENTILS

Cooked in the same way as quinoa, red lentils are quite tender. If you mix it too much, it may disperse immediately and become a puree, so you need to be more gentle. Even if it is specified as red lentils in the recipe, any other type of lentil desired can be used.

LENTIL QUINOA BOWL RECIPE

In cases where no preparation is made, the production of these bowls can take up to 45 minutes, including cooking times. Preparations made in advance will help you reach a more practical meal.

The best thing about these bowls is that each material has a different alternative.

Any kind of pumpkin can be used instead of pumpkin.
Instead of carrots, zucchini, parsnips, beets or potatoes can be used.
Instead of quinoa, you can choose another grain you like at home, such as farro, freekeh, barley or brown rice.

Gluten-free and vegan recipes are both hearty and healthy recipes for those seeking weight loss.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups red lentils
  • 4 large carrots
  • 4 cups butternut squash
  • 4 cups broccoli
  • Salt and pepper

For the Lemon Tahini Sauce

  • 4 tbsp tahini (60 g)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Instructions

    1. Pumpkin and carrots are mixed well with olive oil, sea salt and black pepper and baked in a preheated oven to 425F.

    2. Although the cooking time depends on how firm you want the vegetables to stay, they should be cooked for 40 minutes until they are completely soft.

    3. Meanwhile, broccoli is boiled and, if not prepared beforehand, quinoa and lentils are cooked.

    4. Whisk all the ingredients for the tahini sauce until smooth and creamy. A small amount of this can be used at this stage.

    5. All components are combined and mixed gently. Divide into 4 bowls.

If you are preparing it for later consumption, it is recommended to combine the ingredients when you consume them.
