What’s a Hippie Bowl exactly? It is a dish that allows for endless possibilities of combinations of a grain (I used French púy lentils), a fat source (avocado and spicy hummus here), herbs (cilantro), veggies (I used a carrot), protein (semi hard-boiled egg), and…anything else you want! Think nuts and seeds, roasted, steamed, or raw vegetables, kimchi. Get creative, have fun in the kitchen, and rest assured it’s a nutritious bowl of superfoods!
