2 x Asian Nourish Bowls

After spending over a month in Asia (Bali + Singapore) I've been loving using flavours from my travels in my own kitchen. Asian food isn't just noodles and rice like some people might assume, it's so much more. I encourage you to have fun and experiment with new flavours. Start with Asian flavours and see what else there is to explore. You have a world full of beautiful cuisines and flavours.

Today I'm brining you not only one, but two recipes. Two beautiful nourish bowls with my favourite Asian flavours. These are both super quick to throw together - that's what I especially love about making nourish bowls. 

The first bowl - the dragon bowl - is a recreation of mine. I fell in love with a dish called the 'dragon bowl' at Earth Cafe in Ubud. Since then I've had the idea in mind of making my own version of it.

The second bowl - the green bowl - is almost a sushi bowl. I created it to highlight my love for silken tofu. This type of tofu might be underrated, but I'm telling you it can be life changing.
