Serves Serves: 2

This bowl is filled with flavour and a variety of whole foods, giving you a nourishing and delicious meal in just over 30 minutes. You can of course substitute the tofu for your preference of protein to make it suit your dietary choices too!


  • 150g wild rice
  • 1 aubergine
  • 100g green beans
  • Crispy onion
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach leaves
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill
  • 100g of firm tofu

For the vinaigrette:

  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 2 tsp olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 180 and boil a pan of salted water for the rice.

2. Place the rice on to cook according to packet instructions (usually around 25-30 minutes).

3. Half the aubergine and then cut into small cubes. Then cube the tofu to a similar size and place them together on a baking tray, drizzle with oil and a little salt. Mix well then roast for 30 minutes or until the aubergine is completely soft and the tofu is slightly crispy. Turn a couple of times during cooking to cook more evenly.

4. Steam the green beans (you can use a sieve over the rice, or in a separate pan) for 3-5 minutes. You want to make sure they still have bite to them. Rinse immediately in cold water to stop them cooking further.

5. Place the ingredients for the vinaigrette, excluding the olive oil, in a small saucepan and mix well. Then place over a low heat and allow to simmer gently for 5-10 minutes. Then remove from the heat and add the olive oil.

6. Put a handful of leaves in each bowl. Then add the cooked rice, aubergine and beans. Mix the vinaigrette through then top with the chopped dill and crispy onions to serve.
