Veggie Whole Bowl


 New recipe and Giveaway!

Last summer I travelled to California and spend some days strolling across picturesque beach towns such as Laguna Beach. Here I stumbled upon a little food cafe that served a wide range of healthy dishes and I fell in love with their concept of ‘Bowls’. So simple, yet fun, picking between different types of bowls stuffed with a combination of fresh natural goodies. It inspired me for this week recipe:

The Veggie Whole Bowl. A bowl topped with natural, organic, whole foods. Vegan and gluten free! A dish that fits in perfectly with this time of the year, as we pass from winter to spring. Combining the freshness of a salad with cozy winter vegetables such as cabbage and carrots.

Besides this lovely recipe I also got some great news to share with you. It’s four months since the launch of Feisty Veggies and my first recipe got published! The Stuffed Sweet Peppers recipe is featured in Healthy Recipes Magazine and to celebrate I can give away a free 3-month iPhone/iPad subscription for Healthy Recipes Magazine to all my readers! So, big cheers and get your free subscription here:
