How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Vegan Quinoa Bowl with Almond Sauce (Vegan/Vegetarian/Gluten-free)


Today I introduce you to “Vegan Quinoa Bowl with Almond Sauce”. 


Lately, I love using almond butter for making sauces because it reminds me of Asian flavor!! In this recipe, I use lemon juice, onion powder and garlic powder for the sauce to make the recipe simpler. However, when I combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, almond butter and a hint of sesame oil, it becomes a totally Asian dish!! 


In addition to the sauce, I use a little bit of warm water to adjust the consistency. You can use some olive oil but since almond butter is high in healthy fat, I don’t need to add unnecessary fat. 


This dish is wonderful because you can translate the dish into a taste that fits your preference. You can use any kind of vegetables for topping. And if you are not following a vegan diet, it is good to add some cooked chicken!! Plus, you can use any kind of spice in the sauce. I like using some curry powder too!!

The recipe is so simple:
Cook quinoa. Mix the sauce ingredients. Cut vegetables (Cook them if you need. I cooked the tofu and broccoli). Place everything in a serving plate.

    • Yes! I was using almond butter for sweet dishes, such as adding to yogurt and oatmeal, spreading on toast… But one day I thought it tasted like tahini so I made dressing with almond butter. It was great!! Now I love almond butter dressing and sauce more than using tahini 🙂
