Café Yumm! Sauce and Bowls
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup garbanzo beans
1/2 cup cannellini beans
1/2 cup almond flour/meal
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon cumin
Mix together lemon juice and water in a measuring cup. Set aside.
In a blender or food processor, add the rest of the ingredients. Pour a tablespoon or so of the lemon juice and water to give a little moisture and blend for 30 seconds or until a paste is starting to form.
While the blender is running on a medium setting, pour the rest of the lemon juice and water into the blender and puree until desired thickness.
Pour into sealed container and refrigerate for 1 hour before using. I poured mine into a few small mason jars.
2 cups brown rice, cooked
1 can low sodium black beans, drained
1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup salsa
2 avocados, diced
1 quart cherry tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup plain yogurt
Black olives and cilantro for garnish (optional)
Butter lettuce (one bag), for a little crunch.
Ground turkey (1.25 pounds, extra lean) because Jeff eats a lot :) I made it with a couple shakes of garlic powder, onion powder, and freshly ground black pepper.
To assemble your Yumm! Bowl:
Sprinkle lettuce on your plate (optional).
Place a scoop of rice, turkey (optional), and black beans on top.
Drizzle Yumm Sauce over everything.
Top with cheese, salsa, avocado, tomato, and yogurt.
