The 4th day already! I went fo a colorful poké bowl this time. I realize that I’m halfway of my raw vegan challenge, three days to go. This raw challenge is also good for my electricity bill I guess since I don’t cook that much. This dish is a mix of raw and cooked ingredients though. Remember what I mentioned on day 1. I wasn’t planning to go completely raw with all dishes.
- 1tbsp date syrup
- 1/2 tsp tabasco
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tbsp ketjap manis
- some sesame seed
- 25 g whole-wheat noodles
- 150 g tofu. Cut in blocks
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup shelled edamame
- 2 radishes. Thinly sliced
- 1 large carrot. Thinly sliced in strips
- 1/4 cucumber. Sliced
- 1/4 cup organic corn (ready to eat). I used the organic ones named biologische maiskorrels
- Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside
- Heat the coconut oil. Bake the tofu golden brown and set aside. I have a video of how to make crispy and tasteful tofu.
- Cook the whole-wheat noodles according to the description on the package. I used the noodles from Fair Trade Thaise rijst noedels van zilvervliesrijst. You only need hot water for them
- Cook or steam edamame for 5 minutes and set aside
- Decorate the bowl with the ingredients
- Use the rest of the sauce to top the bowl
What do I think of this dish?
Obviously, it wasn’t completely raw but what I already mentioned, I wasn’t planning to go 100% raw with this challenge. That would be too ambitious for me. I wanted to eat more raw ingredients since the only raw food I eat is fruit mostly.
I liked the whole combination and oh gosh, the sauce was a killer so yes! I would go for it again and maybe I would use other ingredients like my precious mango and I think I would also go for some green leafy vegetables. Believe me, many raw vegetables will taste good with this sauce!
If you try this dish, let me know by giving me a comment below. I would really appreciate it.
