A Power Bowl punch for lunch is a great idea.
Recently I’ve been trying out various “bowl recipes”, which is essentially real food in the easiest way: one simple bowl.
The great thing about this recipe is that you only need a few basic ingredients, and can just throw in whatever you have on hand.
I like to use leftover beans, but you can substitute those for any ingredients that you love.

Sautéed Tofu cubes are a great addition to this meal.
This soup tends to be on the watery side, so it is fun to slurp it up.
I enjoy this soup thoroughly and I think you will too!
I would love to know which are your favourite toppings to add to this soup!!
