This Lemon-Miso Tofu bowl is so nutritious and nourishing for your body. I used cauliflower which belongs to the cruciferous vegetable group. Studies have shown that these vegetables have anti-cancerous properties. Then I paired it with tomatoes and orange pieces, for an added vitamin C and antioxidants.
The base for this bowl, is radicchio lettuce and multicolored quinoa. Quinoa is truly a superfood, it contains small amounts of heart healthy omega-3-fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, amongst others.
To make this meal complete, I topped it with healthy fats such as avocado. It takes less than 30 minutes to make, and I promise, the whole family will love it.
