For those of you who may or may not know, one of my favorite vegetarian/vegan restaurants is Life Alive in Cambridge. I absolutely love their Swami bowl. It’s my favorite thing on their menu. I wanted to find a way to duplicate it myself so that I could make it at home. After some trial and error, I was able to put together a recipe that I think comes pretty close to the original. I hope you enjoy it with all its curry deliciousness!
- Brown rice
- Almonds (slivered or chopped)
- Shredded carrots
- Pearl onions (frozen)
- Nutritional yeast flakes
Curry Miso Sauce:
- 1 tsp white miso paste
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tsp minced ginger
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp honey (optional)
- Follow directions to cook brown rice on the stovetop. You can make however many servings you like and save the leftover rice for later.
- To prepare the curry miso sauce, mince the garlic and ginger. Add all ingredients to a blender and mix for approximately 30 sec. Set the sauce aside.
- Chop 2 leaves of kale. Set aside.
- If you bought fresh broccoli, chop it into florets. Set aside.
- Add 1 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil to a pan.
- Over medium heat, sauté the onions for a minute or two. Then add the carrots and broccoli. Cover and cook till broccoli turns bright green, stirring occasionally.
- Add a little bit of water to the pan and then add the kale and steam until kale turns bright green. Remove from heat.
- When your brown rice is done, spoon a serving of rice into a bowl. Pour the curry miso sauce over the rice. Add a handful of raisins. Next, cover the rice with your sautéed vegetables. Top with a handful of almonds and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast flakes.
Happy cooking! Post pics and #sugaredchic if you make it!
Note: You can purchase nutritional yeast at your local healthy food store. I bought mine in bulk at Harvest Co-op, but you can also find it at Whole Foods.
I bought my miso paste at H-mart, but I’m sure you can find it at any Asian supermarket. You can check the international food aisle in your grocery store too.
