Savory Yogurt Plate

Are you bored with the same old salad or wrap for lunch? Then check out this recipe because its super easy and quick to make. This recipe is for meal prepping or sharing with 3 or 4 other guests. A variety of flavor and an almost endless amount of different combinations. I love playing with unique flavors and always inspired to make dishes that incorporate my culture and others that I love. This is a mixture of Mediterranean and Hispanic flavors with a touch of kimchi a korean twist.

This has been my addiction the past couple of months and I've made many variations of these savory yogurt bowls. Super nourishing and exciting each time you make them. You can even leave out the yogurt and eat as a huge salad.

These toppings are completely versatile and you could take away or add anything else. What you see here are my homemade carrot and radish kimchi, sprouted mung beans, apples, chopped cherry tomatoes, fresh mint, and of course vegan yogurt. For this recipe, I made my own, but for now, you must use a store bought one. I've used Forager Project Yogurt and you can buy this in your local grocery store like whole foods, Sprouts, and many other small organic and health food stores. 

Then assemble your plate or bowl as you wish and remember its endless amount of unique ways to make these kinds of meals. Enjoy.
