Buddha Superfood bowl

NOTE: The portion size, can easily be adjusted, I do eat more than this, and your welcome to add more, as per your liking. 🙂

INGREDIENTS:

(BABA GANOUSH)

1 medium eggplant ( cut thin slits around)
1 clove of garlic
1 tbsp of sesame or olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 handful of chopped coriander

Directions:

Place the eggplant ( after thin slits have been made on its body) on a baking tray and roast for 30 – 60 mins in a 200C pre-heated oven.

Once the eggplant has slightly shrunk, and the skin is wrinkly and the body is smooth ( like a smooth soaked sponge) Let it cool to room temperature, and begin peeling the skin ( should be fairly easy) depending on the type of eggplant ( remove any excess seeds) as they tend to be bitter, put the mushy eggplant in a food blender, add the garlic, salt, and lemon, blend until a smooth consistency, then add some olive oil and serve 🙂

100 g of purple carrots
1 medium sized sweet potato
1 medium cauliflower
1 medium size onion ( white)
100g of okra

1 tsp of coconut oil
Olive oil (extra virgin) or sesame oil (cold pressed)
