So good with avocado


Barbora Štruncová - Jan. 29, 2024, 6:33 a.m.

I cooked too much of quinoa, but I found a recipe for your quinoa waffles, and it was a nice sweet reward after this delicious food. I felt good after eating it. Thank you for your recipes!

PUL Team - Jan. 30, 2024, 4 p.m.

We're so glad to hear, Barbora, thanks for the lovely review! 😊


Erica - Jan. 26, 2024, 8:20 p.m.

Hi PUL team,

Is there a way to make the sauce less bitter?

PUL Team - Jan. 29, 2024, 5:31 a.m.

Hey Erica, thanks for connecting! The bitterness if from the tahini, so to make the sauce less bitter you could add less tahini, or alternatively add a bit more sweetness from agave or maple syrup to balance it out. Acid, from a bit of lemon juice to taste, might also help 🤗


Emily - Jan. 15, 2024, 6:53 a.m.

Did NOT like the sauce; I replaced with a combo of balsamic vinegar and balsamic glaze and it was AWESOME


Poiven Capp - Jan. 8, 2024, 4:17 a.m.

I love the nourish bowl concept and I love how seasonal this recipe is. good flavors too. I ended up overbaking the sweet potato by blindly following the time in the recipe, I need to remember to keep an eye on things!


Erica Kant - Jan. 5, 2024, 7:53 p.m.

Thank you thank you thank you for this recipe!!! So good

PUL Team - Jan. 5, 2024, 9:12 p.m.

Thank YOU for the glowing review and support, Erica!


Marit van Splunter - Dec. 30, 2023, 12:28 a.m.

What a great recipe for brussel sprouts! Dressing was also delicious. Definitely worth a repeat.


erica bulow - Dec. 21, 2023, 12:54 a.m.

Easy to assemble and hearty. The dressing is delicious with a splash of maple syrup added.


aude - Dec. 15, 2023, 12:56 p.m.

Absolutely delicious !


Tereza Ruzickova - Dec. 11, 2023, 7:30 a.m.

This is incredible. I can’t believe I can enjoy something with brussel sprouts this much 😄


Kat - Nov. 15, 2023, 9:04 p.m.

I love this bowl! It's perfect for meal prepping because it tastes great both warm and cold.


Elyse L. - Nov. 14, 2023, 10:06 p.m.

Delicious and very filling and nourishing!


Anna Lowe - Sept. 29, 2023, 9:48 p.m.

Such an easy recipe that tastes so delicious!!


Jessy Sanchez - Sept. 28, 2023, 1 a.m.

So yummy and light!😍


Nazia A - Sept. 15, 2023, 2:39 a.m.

Definitely nourishing! I still have ways to go with trying to adapt to quinoa so I used brown rice instead. Absolutely delicious and the dressing was outstanding. And this is my first time trying and finishing all my brussel sprouts. Autumn or not— this meal will be made on repeat.

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2023, 6:08 p.m.

Brown rice is a lovely idea to modify the bowl, Nazia, thank you for sharing your experience with it 🤗

Nazia A - Sept. 15, 2023, 10:48 p.m.

The only other question I had was I used frozen brussel sprouts and glazed them with garlic and roasted them in the air fryer but I noticed my stomach was aching and very bloated. Should I stay away from brussel sprouts is there a way to become tolerant to them over time?

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2023, 6:37 a.m.

Hey Nazia, stomach discomfort and bloating after having Brussels sprouts could be due to their high fibre amount or the way they were prepared. You could try starting with smaller portions, being sure to drink enough water, or different cooking methods to see if your comfort improves over time, but if the symptoms continue, it might be best to consult a doctor or a dietitian to rule out any underlying issue. In case you haven't seen already, we have an article and video on bloating that dive into the topic more 😎


Amrita Gupta - Sept. 13, 2023, 7:31 p.m.

I am on a keto diet. I substituted cauliflower rice with quinoa. Skipped the sweet potatoes and it was truly delicious


Brittany Miller - Sept. 4, 2023, 5:55 p.m.

So delicious, nutritious and filling!! I love how you can roast any veggies you have in the fridge (we added beets and broccoli) and it tasted delicious with the sauce. Thanks PUL Team!


Danilo - Aug. 21, 2023, 10:22 p.m.

Love this recipe! I cook every fall😉


Isla - June 20, 2023, 12:51 a.m.

Super delicious and easy! Topped mine with chopped dates and pepitas also had it with brown rice instead. Will be a staple for us this winter :))


Ruth - April 14, 2023, 11:57 p.m.

This is a recipe I come back to again and again over autumn and winter and is great for meal prep that then sees me through a few meals. I love the colours as well as the tastes of all the different components of this nourish bowl.

PUL Team - April 15, 2023, 3:24 a.m.

Aw so glad it's being enjoyed, Ruth, thank you!


roxana - March 5, 2023, 3:57 p.m.

super !


Rosa - Feb. 12, 2023, 11:04 a.m.

We loved this Sadia! The dressing was just divine, and the combination of veggies with the sweetness of the cranberries and the tardness of the pomegranate was nothing but excellent! I cannot have garlic, but the other flavours in this recipe were definitely enough and the garlic wasn't missed :). Only thing I recommend others: double up on the pomegranate! Just because it's such a nice fresh crunch in there.
Thank you!

PUL Team - Feb. 12, 2023, 5:46 p.m.

Woohoo! It means so much, Rosa - thank you for taking the time to share. Extra pomegranate sounds 🤌


Lillith Walker - Dec. 18, 2022, 10:55 p.m.

We made this for dinner tonight. OH. MY. GOD! This was truly fabulous! The only substitutions I made was to fry the onion, garlic, and spinach together as the only spinach I had was frozen, I added some salt and pepper to the sweet potato and Brussels sprouts, and I used vegetable broth instead of water and bouillon cube for the quinoa, and I omitted the almonds since I did not have any on hand. The pomegranate seeds and the cranberries add an amazing touch of sweetness and texture to the overall bowl so do not skip them. The dressing blew my mind and I cannot wait to have it on other bowls and salads! Whoever came up with the idea of pairing tahini, miso paste, and dijon mustard together was genius! This bowl will absolutely be on regular rotation at our table!

PUL Team - Dec. 18, 2022, 11:09 p.m.

Aw thank you for the glowing feedback, Lillith, it means so much! We're beyond happy to hear the recipe was enjoyed 😃


Kati - Nov. 22, 2022, 11:06 p.m.

I love this bowl. It's tasty and filling and a nice way to eat Brussel Sprouts in a different way. And I love that I can make a bigger amount, since it tastes also great cold the next day as a healthy lunch at work. Thank you! 😊♥️

PUL Team - Nov. 23, 2022, 4:19 a.m.

It means so much that the recipe is being enjoyed, Kati, thank you!


Bhargavi - Nov. 3, 2022, 2:02 a.m.

I made the dressing. Loved it! I substituted almond butter for tahini.. So delicious and creamy.

PUL Team - Nov. 3, 2022, 6:33 p.m.

So glad it was enjoyed, Bhargavi!


Ross - Nov. 2, 2022, 10:51 p.m.

Wonderful and incredibly cured, thank you so much for sharing this!


Ashley - Nov. 2, 2022, 7:06 p.m.

Hi Sadia
I was just looking for the video where you have shown how to make homemade sprouts in the jar?

Please help me to find the video

And thanks for beautifuly presented videos !

PUL Team - April 14, 2022, 7:42 a.m.

Anna - April 15, 2022, 4:18 p.m.

thank you very much :)


Caitlin - March 15, 2022, 10:52 a.m.

This is a favourite we enjoy over and over again! The flavour combinations are so warming and delicious, and the pomegranate, cranberries and almonds make such a pleasant sweet crunch. I love this bowl so much! Thanks so much PUL!

PUL Team - March 15, 2022, 6:31 p.m.

Awe we appreciate the glowing review so much, Caitlin, thank YOU 😊


Craig - Feb. 9, 2022, 6:16 a.m.

Fantastic! Easy and delicious! I made this for my wife and daughter tonight and both loved it! This recipe has earned a spot on our short list. Thank you!

PUL Team - Feb. 9, 2022, 7:31 p.m.

Woohoo! So glad to hear, Craig 🌻


Celina - Nov. 7, 2021, 12:10 a.m.

This tastes so amazing. Everything works so well together and I especially love the roasted veggies. It's the perfect meal for this season and so comforting, too.

PUL Team - Nov. 7, 2021, 11:47 p.m.

So happy it was enjoyed, Celina!


Lizzy - Nov. 5, 2021, 8:34 p.m.

Yum yum yum, so tasty and I love how healthy it makes me feel! Perfect for the season. Thank you!


Linda - Oct. 25, 2021, 1:01 a.m.

I really liked the flavors of this salad. I’m not a fan of tahini so used hummus as suggested in options and thought this worked well in place of the sauce.
The toppings of cranberry, pomegranate and nuts finish it off perfectly and the caramelized onions were delicious.
I think I over-cooked the Brussel sprouts so might cook them for less time than the onions and sweet potatoes next time.

PUL Team - Oct. 26, 2021, 5:03 a.m.

Hello Linda, thanks for sharing the substitute and adjustments with us! Do let us know how it goes if you give the recipe another try 🙂


Lea - Oct. 16, 2021, 1:56 p.m.

It was great! I think I used too little oil on the baking veggies though. They turned a little more black but were still tasty! I switched the tahini for cashew paste and it tasted very good.

PUL Team - Oct. 16, 2021, 3:49 p.m.

Hi Lea! Thanks for sharing your experience with this one. We're glad it was enjoyed despite the darker veggies. Turning the oven down a touch should help as well if you're interested and plan to give the recipe another try ☺️


Clara - Oct. 5, 2021, 11:24 a.m.

This one is so good !! Now, that autumn arrived, it was a perfect lunch :) the sauce for this recipe was heavenly. We used peanut butter since we didn't have tahini, and it was just as good ! 10/10 !!

PUL Team - Oct. 6, 2021, 3:34 a.m.

A lovely substitution, Clara, we appreciate this so much 😊


Cheryl - Sept. 7, 2021, 2:28 a.m.

Could you recommend a vegetarian bouillon cube? I usually use Better Than Bouillon paste. Would that work the same? I'd love to try it with what you use to get the best flavor. Thank you in advance.

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2021, 2:02 a.m.

Hi Cheryl, thank you for the question! We use the ones we get from our local store here called Albert Heijn, but I'm sure the paste you have should work just fine. We hope you love the recipe if you give it a try ☺️


Monica - Aug. 1, 2021, 1:23 a.m.

I made this for Thanksgiving a few years ago. It was great, but because it takes over an hour to make I haven't made it since.

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2021, 5:14 a.m.

Thanks for sharing, Monica! So honoured to have been part of the special occasion. Since a bulk of the recipe time is the veggies and quinoa cooking, we find this is a fun one to make while multitasking (such as preparing another meal, dessert, or cleaning up around the kitchen 😃). Really grateful for the feedback regardless to help us improve 😊


Leene - July 24, 2021, 6:40 p.m.

This is the perfect bowl! Everyone in my family loved it from my 2-year old niece to the adults! Will definitely be making it again! :)

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 2:04 a.m.

So happy to hear you're all enjoying the nourish bowl, Leene 😃


Sonia - July 23, 2021, 2:12 p.m.

I don't really like brussels sprouts, but this is nice! I love the special toppings on this bowl and every bite has a burst of flavor. Also great sauce :D


paige - July 10, 2021, 3:54 a.m.

this bowl is amazing! I made it for my family and everyone loved it. So easy and the flavours are amazing together, the sauce is especially delicious. Yum!

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 5:32 a.m.

Hi Paige, thank you for your review! So glad you enjoyed it :)
