Turkey power bowl with peanut sauce

Turkey power bowl with peanut sauce

Bowls full of things to nibble on are always a happy place to me! You put what you want, what you like, add color, crunch... Ideal for weeknight where it is busy and dinner needs to come quick without eating unhealthy.

Here I made a pretty bowl with turkey and peanut sauce. I added edamame and shredded carrots for texture and color. A little bit of creamy avocado. A nice thick layer of quinoa so I don't get hungry an hour after eating and we are set for a delicious dinner (or lunch really). I made another power bowl a while ago featuring smoked trout, check it out!

Turkey power bowl with peanut sauce (serves 2-3)

For the sauce :

  • 1/3 cup (80g) smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 to 3 tbsp water

For the bowl :

  • 200g uncooked quinoa
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 avocado
  • 100g edamame
  • 200-300g turkey filet
  • A little bit of lemon juice

Cook the quinoa in twice its volume of water. For that, add the rinsed quinoa in a pot and add water. Cover and cook over medium heat until water is completely absorbed, it should take about 15 minutes.

Prep the sauce. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Add water 1 tbsp at a time so the sauce is the right consistency, thin but not too runny.

Slice the turkey filet and cook it in a non-stick pan until done. Set aside.

If you are using fresh edamame, blanch it in boiling water for 30 seconds. If using frozen, just thaw it.

Slice the avocado and scoop it out. Add a little lemon juice to avoid browning.

Shred the carrots.

Now is time to put the bowl together.

Add a thick layer of quinoa at the bottom of the bowl. Then add turkey, carrots, edamame and avocado. Drizzle the sauce over.

Serve and enjoy!
