R144 Vegan Couscous Bowl with brussels sprouts

The kind of bowling we love! If you follow us on Instagram you may have seen all the yummy lunch bowls we ate in the last few months. No matter if we use roasted chickpeas, baked veggies, smoked tofu, limes, rice or guacamole – we love them in each constellation. So fill your bowls with the stuff you love and make them to your best friend ever. Today we show you a recipe for a vegan couscous bowl with roasted brussels sprouts, cause well, even Julia loves it, and she is not a fan of brussels sprouts. We topped this bowl with our favorite tahin dressing and that’s all you need to be in love with bowling, haha.
