When I remade the Adventurer Bowl from Life Alive, it was the highlight of my day. Heck, it was the highlight of my week!
But sommeonee in the family got a little jealous. “Why do you make all the good food for yourself?…I want that for dinner tonight”
Fine! Easy enough for me. I decided to switch it up and make my dad’s favorite from Life Alive: The Swami. I’ve tried both at the restaurant and the Adventurer is still my go-to. However, the dishes are completely different so to each his own.
… I should probably stop with all these remakes. I mean is this even legal? Can I get sued by Life Alive for this?
It would be worth it.
Sweet Curry Miso Dressing (1-2 servings) adapted from Andrea Lucas:
1 garlic glove
1 tsp freshly minced/chopped ginger
1 tsp tamari (or soy sauce)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp water
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp honey (or agave)
1 tsp miso paste
The Swami (1 serving) adapted from Life Alive:
1-2 leaves kale
1 cup cooked quinoa & brown rice blend* [3 grains, 1 protein]
1 oz. white/cremini mushrooms (optional)
1/2 cup broccoli, steamed [1/2 vegetable]
1/2 cup shredded carrots [1/2 vegetable]
1 tbsp nutritional yeast [1/2 protein]
1 tbsp almonds, chopped [1/2 fat]
1 tbsp raisins [1/2 fruit]
1 tsp olive oil [1 fat]
>> Sauté onions, mushrooms, broccoli and carrots in oil. Chop almonds and roast them slightly in a separate skillet to bring out flavor. Chop Kale and arrange on a dish. Add cooked brown rice and quinoa blend. Top with sautéed vegetables, almonds, raisins, and nutritional yeast. Drizzle the sweet curry miso dressing over everything.
*I used Seeds of Change ready to heat packs, but you can make your own brown rice & quinoa mix.
