Ogambuzino inspired Burrito Bowl

This recipe is inspired and adapted from a dish I had at the Ogambuzino restaurant in Lisbon and I absolutely felt in love with. Let’s dive right into it, if I had a friend who would consider transitioning to a plant-based diet but is afraid the food won’t taste good enough, I would take her out to dinner at Ogambuzino and buy her a Burrito Bowl. That would be enough for her to forget all her worries and make the transition, I am sure of it!

This bowl has them all, different textures, colors and aromas.

The brown rice is a whole grain that contains the bran and germ which provide fiber and several vitamins and minerals. It has a nutty flavour and a medium chewy texture.

Beans are one of my favourite ingredients that I try to eat daily, wanna know why? They are packed with fiber, low in fat and loaded with protein, iron and zinc. Also, it was found that, in blue zones areas the longest-lived people eat beans on a daily basis. I see no reason not to follow their example. Red kidney beans are unique in flavour, sweet and creamy with some earthy notes.

The salty and sour sauerkraut will nicely balance the sweetness of this meal. Not only do they taste delicious but fermented foods are nutritional powerhouses, a wonderful source of probiotic bacteria.

The pineapple and guacamole give the dish some fresh notes while the textured soya will pump up your protein intake for the day and comfort those still making the transition.
