This is a really fast and easy Rich Protein Bowl. It is made with few ingredients. The great thing with Bowls is you can use whatever you have. It is a great way to use small leftovers. If you want it totally vegetarian skip the chicken and add for instance roasted, cubed sweet potatoes instead. This is what I had this particular day.
- 1 cup sweet peas
- 1 cup beans
- 1 cup cooked rice or quinoa or bulgur
- 200 grams chickenfilés
- 4 dl chickpeas cooked
- 1 dl sour cream
- 1 bag fresh spinach leaves (about 3 handfulls)
Roast the chickpeas
Set the oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Rinse the chickpeas with cold water and pour them on a sheet of parchment paper.
Drizzle the oil over the chickpeas and sprinkle over paprika powder or chili powder.
Roast in the oven for approx. 20 minutes.
Roast the potatoes:
While the chickpeas are in the oven, prepare the other ingredients.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan with oil and brown the chicken on medium heat for about 2 min on each side until they have a golden brown color.
Place the chicken in a pan in the oven and let them cook for about 15 min.
Cut the filés into thin slices.
Plate the rice or bulgur or quinoa first in the bowl, add the roasted chickpeas, peas, chicken and other ingredients in the bowl.
Top with pickles if you have. In a bowl you can really add anything of your liking and what makes it pretty as well.
If you want to serve with a sauce you can mix Creme Fraiche with thyme (dried), basil (dried), garlic pepper, black pepper and salt. Top with a little chopped spinach.
