1⁄2 tablespoon

1⁄4  
head of red cabbage (cut into large slices )
   
---FOR THE BOWLS---
12  
Grape Tomatoes (the orange Zima ones from Sprouts are my favorite!)
   
handful of fresh cilantro
   
handful of sriracha peanuts (sold in the bulk bins at Sprouts)
1 teaspoon
sesame seeds (for garnish)
1  
Avocado (cut into slices)
1⁄2 cup
thinly sliced red cabbage

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut bell peppers and sweet potatoes into 1" pieces/cubes. In a medium mixing bowl, toss them with the rinsed chickpeas plus 1/2 tbsp sesame oil and ground ginger/maple. Lay onto a parchment lined sheetpan in a single layer and roast for 20 minutes, until peppers are slightly browned and sweet potato is softened.
  3. Meanwhile, cook your purple rice in a pressure cooker.  Combine the rice, water, almondmilk, and sesame oil in the pressure cooker Stir. Then, layer on a slice or two of red cabbage. Press the RICE button and cook on high pressure for approximately 12 min. Remove the steamed cabbage to serve with the #NourishBowl and stir the rice to distribute the purple color. If you want it to be MORE purple, you can squeeze the steamed cabbage to get more of the juices out and onto the rice. Discard the steamed cabbage pieces. (You will have extra rice to use later).
  4. Combine the sauce ingredients in a large measuring cup, then use an immersion hand blender to blend until smooth. 
  5. Assemble your bowls! First, add 1/3 - 1/2 cup of purple rice to each bowl. Then add some of each roasted veggie, some crispy chickpeas, tomatoes, cilantro, a few slices of avocado, sriracha peanuts, red cabbage, sesame seeds, and a dollop of sauce.
