Try out this family favorite recipe that is good for all kinds of diets! Let me know how you liked it and if you made any changes to make it your own!
This Low FODMAP version of the Loaded Power Bowl is a totally versatile dish, it can be anything you want it to be; full of protein and fiber it can be a meal to get you ready for a marathon or it can be vegetarian or even vegan and still be super filling.
Play around with the ingredients and make it how you like it. For me, it’s great because I have people in the house with different diets, likes/dislikes and this is great to mix up however each person likes it with minimal effort.
The recipe here is vegetarian, but feel free to add any kind of meat to this dish, I’ve tried them all, even salmon and it was good. This original recipe was created with 2 over easy eggs on top, which isn’t an option for me, so I just omit it; but everyone else likes the added flavor and protein!
|Serves||Prep Time||Cook Time|
|4||10 minutes||55 minutes|
- 4 Each Sweet Potatoes
- 2 Cup Spinach
- 1/2 Cup Low FODMAP Salsa
- 1/2 Cup Pepper Jack Cheese
- 1 Each Avocado
- 1/8 Cup Cilantro
- 8 Each Eggs
Potatoes: poke holes in potatoes with fork, rub each one down with a little oil, cook in your microwave until they are soft and cooked through (about 8-10 minutes). You may also bake them at 400F for about 45 minutes.
Spinach: In a large, non-stick pan saute’ the spinach in a little water or broth if you have any you need to used up (about 1-2 Tbl) just until wilted and add a little kosher salt to taste. Remove from pan and keep warm.
Preheat oven to broil.
Build your bowls: To each oven safe bowl, add smashed sweet potato (skin removed) to form a nice base. Next, layer each with 1/4 of the spinach. If using salsa, top the spinach next (if using pico de gallo wait until the end).
Next, (add meat here if you’re using that) add 2 eggs to each bowl and top with 1/4 of the cheese. Place bowls on a cookie sheet and place under the broiler just until the cheese starts to turn brown and melty.
Before serving top each bowl with 1/4 avocado and cilantro (and pico de gallo if using instead of salsa). Serve immediately.
Options: Saute a little corn for another dimension of flavor.
Substitute quinoa or millet for sweet potatoes or even add it, to bulk up the meal.
Add any kind of meat, my family loves grilled chicken tenderloins or thinly sliced sirloin steak the best.
Substitute cheese of your choice, I think Mexican cheese blend or Colby Jack would be good options too.
Substitute pico de gallo for salsa. Substitute scallions for cilantro or have both. Add a little dairy free sour cream or Greek yogurt to the top.
