Vegan Keto Mediterranean Bowl

January 06, 2021

A stunning array of eye-popping colors, tongue-tickling contrasting flavors, and a bright, acidic vinaigrette that allows the plant-based main ingredients to shine, this vegan keto Mediterranean bowl deceives. The bounty of vegetables and varying textures—the meaty, briny bite of kalamata olives; richness of the emerald flesh of avocado; and creaminess of the chickpeas—belie the fact that this plant-forward vegan keto bowl is deceptively easy to prepare. Simply steam, cook cauliflower rice in a pan, or microwave the cauliflower rice, and that's all the cooking this salad-in-disguise takes. Drain the chickpeas and artichokes, chop the produce, olives, and parsley, and toss everything together with a simple but snappy avocado oil and vinegar vinaigrette. Season to taste and this Mediterranean bowl comes together in 10 minutes or less for a bountiful keto vegan dinner recipe or great-to-tote lunch recipe that is ideal for savoring while sitting under the sun.
