Food bowl has long been one of my favourite ideas for a fast dinner. The inspiration for these dishes is for sure Instagram, and beautiful photos of colourful dishes served in bowls. Food bowls are not only breakfast decorated with flowers, fruit, nuts and seeds. They could also be dinner or lunch, because you can put almost everything into the bowl, making a heathy, balanced meal which is yummy, beautiful and easy, and you can safely pack it for lunch.
Today I would like to share with you the recipe for my food bowl: quinoa, roasted radishes, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and pistachios. In my opinion: yummy! I also need a lot of chopped parsley, a spoon or fork and it's ready to eat. I added sesame seed oil to my food bowl. You should add it just before serving because you don't need to heat it more than 70C. I recommend it!
Ingredients (for 2 people)
100g of quinoa
100g of feta cheese
6-8 cherry tomatoes
3 tablespoons of parsley
2 fistfuls of pistachios
2-3 tablespoons of sesame seed oil
salt and pepper
Heat the oven up to 200C.
Cut the footstalks and green stems from the radishes. Cut them in half. Sprinkle with one tablespoon of olive oil, add salt and pepper and stir. Put the radishes into a small casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes.
Rinse the quinoa. Put it into a saucepan and add 200ml of boiling water. Boil without stirring until the quinoa soaks up the water (about 10-15 minutes). Leave some pistachios and a couple of parsley leaves for decoration. Mix the sesame seed oil with the chopped parsley and chopped pistachios. Spice up the sauce with salt and pepper. Mix the boiled and slightly cooled down quinoa with the sesame seed oil.
Cube the feta cheese and the cut the cherry tomatoes into halves.
Arrange the quinoa, feta cheese, radishes, cherry tomatoes in a bowl. Decorate with the leaves of parsley and pistachios.
Enjoy your meal!
