Shakti Bowl

Last week, I celebrated one of my soul sisters, Addie’s birthday. Addie and I often eat Life Alive, our go-to plant-based Cambridge restaurant. For Addie’s birthday, I recreated her favorite Life Alive meal, the Swami Bowl. In honor of Addie’s radiant strength, I have renamed it the “Shakti Bowl.”

I highly recommend visiting Life Alive if you are in the Boston area (they also have locations in Lowell and Salem)! Check out ROO’s other Life Alive recreations, including, the Mystic Mountain Mama Salad, the Coconut Revive Smoothie, and the Helpful Healer Bowl.

Bowl Ingredients: *Serves 2

  • 2 cooked cups brown rice
  • 4 leaves kale
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped finely
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 avocado
  • Raisins
  • Tamari almonds

Sweet Miso Curry Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1.5 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1.5 teaspoon miso
  • 1.5 teaspoon honey


  1. Prepare brown rice and set aside
  2. Blend the sweet miso curry sauce ingredients and set aside
  3. Heat a sauté pan over medium heat
  4. Add the carrots, broccoli, onion, and a dash of water to the pan. Cover for a few minutes to steam the vegetables.
  5. When the onions are soft, and the broccoli has turned bright green, uncover, and turn the heat to low
  6. Add the brown rice, kale, and sweet curry miso sauce on low heat until the kale wilts
  7. Top with raisins, tamari almonds, and avocado


Have you been to Life Alive? What’s your favorite meal on the menu? Maybe I will recreate it for you :).

  1. This looks so amazing! I’m going to recreate it (and just swap out tamari for soy sauce). Adore Life Alive! I’ve re-created The Goddess, but I’m interested in The Healer. 🙂

    1. Thanks for checking the recipe out! I am curious to know what you think. Have you published a recipe for The Goddess? Would love to see it!
