Tropical Nourish Bowl | Escape Haven Bali Health Retreat

Tropical Nourish Bowl

Nourish bowls offer a vibrant way to get plenty of nutrients in one quick and delicious bowl. Ideally, a nourish bowl will combine clean proteins, healthy fats and abundant antioxidants, yet they are incredibly versatile and can be adapted to suit both seasonal produce and individual preferences. Doing a little preparation one day a week can make it easy to throw together a variety of bowl- centered meals- this may mean whipping up a batch of roast vegetables, cooking some quinoa or brown rice to pop in the fridge, and making sure you have a tasty dressing on hand.

If you’re dreaming of sunshine, salty skin and tropical living, this bowl may just help carry you there! The grilled pineapple delivers a lovely char-grilled sweetness to the bowl, while the combination of tempeh and edamame offer a sustaining protein hit. The dressing is heavenly and if you have extra leftover, use it to top any salads or steamed vegetables.

Serves 2

The Bowl

  • 1 cup of cooked brown rice
  • ½ a packet of organic tempeh
  • ½ cup of edamame beans (shelled)
  • 2 radish thinly sliced
  • 1/8 of a pumpkin, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons of alfalfa sprouts
  • 2 large slices of pineapple cut into quarters

Tempeh Marinade

  • 1 tablespoon of tamari
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut nectar
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped ginger

Macadamia, Ginger & Lime Dressing-

  • ¼ cup macadamia butter*
  • 1 tablespoon ginger chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut nectar
  • 1 tablespoon water


For the tempeh :

Slice the tempeh long ways and then divide into triangular pieces.
Mix all of the ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl. Add the tempeh and coat each side well, then marinate for at least 2 hours.

For the bowl :

For the pumpkin, use a regular vegetable peeler to peel long strips, like you would grate a carrot. Place the pumpkin strips aside, along with your sliced radish and alfalfa until you are ready to build your bowl.
Heat a griddle or regular frying and place the pineapple slices on one side and the tempeh on the other. Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes and then flip each piece and remove when golden on both sides.

For the dressing :

Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
*You can use any type of nut butter here if you cannot find macadamia butter.

To serve :

To build the bowl, divide the brown rice, pumpkin, radish, pineapple, tempeh and sprouts between two bowls evenly.
Drizzle the bowls with the dressing and serve.
