PROBIOTIC + PROTEIN POWER BOWL


with over 50g of protein [per serve], 885mg of calcium [per serve] and a probiotic punch - this power bowl is not only super healthy but super tasty and super satisfying! 

how? 

1 cup of cooked brown rice
1 cup of cooked puy (a.k.a french) lentils (i whacked mine in the pressure cooker with a few bay leaves for 10 minutes) 
400g block of extra firm tofu, cubed and pan fried (i drizzled mine with a little black cherry vincotto for a bit more bite)
2-3 cups of roughly shredded cos lettuce
** amended - 1/2 cup of cucumber, diced

for the dressing... 

2 tablespoons of miso paste (i used white)
2 tablespoons of tahini (i used hulled)
1 small clove of garlic
1/4 to 1/3 cup of water

blend all dressing ingredients together in a wet mill (or with a bamix) until thoroughly combined. toss everything together with a generous drizzling of the dressing and enjoy!
