  • Just made myself this, with a few slight variations (self made sofritas instead of lentils) and it was so SO good. I can’t believe I made this. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  • That bowl does not have sufficient carbohydrates, you will be hungry within an hour. You should put another portion of potatoes or rice.

  • The idea of combining red lentils and oats sound amazing! I am definitely trying this recipe. I love the idea of topping with sauteed green! What?!!! So excited about this! You guys are awesome!

  • This was sooo good!! I used green lentils and fresh tomatoes for the „meat“. Sadly the avocados I had weren’t good anymore so i didn‘t even have the guacamole. It was still so amazing! Thanks for making these videos, they are soo helpful and fun to watch����

  • VEGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaassssss!!!!!!!!! I know this is a three year old video but I just found you and am always so happy when it’s VEGAN recipe!!!!!!! It’s just not the same when it’s not vegan, but we can change the recipe to make it vegan, you know what I mean? Is there a reason why you’re not vegan? If it’s too personal I understand, but it just seems that this day and age with all the information we have and clearly know about living a Vegan lifestyle, it just makes me scratch my head in confusion, this is such a great channel and you have such an awesome personality and you’re sooo smart and you obviously care about your health, your husbands health and the health of others, including your adorable dog, I’m certain that you love animals and you care about the earth…..hmmmmmm????��‍♀️????? Vegan???? It’s so easy these days, there are soooo many awesome alternatives. I just found you and your channel and I’ve been binge watching it since and loving it and then I come across the animals and earth situation and it honestly is very difficult to watch and is becoming more difficult, dang it. I know the answer may be that I have to just not watch your channel, but I was thinking if I knew why or if you had any suggestions then maybe there’s a good resolution, what do ya think, am I asking too much, if I am I deeply apologize. ❤️Kathy

  • Love, Love this idea. I am constantly meal prepping and i do my taco bowls a bit diff so this is just another great idea to add to my meal prep:)

  • Just finished making and eating this delicious burrito bowl �� Thanks so much for the lentil “meat” substitute, it’s much more affordable to make and nutritious to eat.

  • I made this today and it was delicious! Definitely the tastiest meal I have had in ages, it will be in my regular rotation from now on. Thank you so much for sharing with us x

  • Were those spices supposed to replace or taste like taco seasoning? Because it doesn’t. I make a wonderful taco seasoning that is definitely taco. I used it and had a great supper with your recipe but my own taco seasoning

  • I made this. It took way way longer than 10 minutes but it is some of the best damn stuff you can put in your mouth! All the different components are fantastic, from the lime vinaigrette, the lentil walnut taco “meat”, all of it. If you eat dairy you can add cheese or sour cream. Would make a great party meal, vegan or no..subscribed, thanks!

  • So I’ve came to a decision to start going plant based. And I’ve been looking up recipes and cooking them and I was surprised how good all the meals taste without any meat. I made this recipe with the vegan burrito bowl and it was fire ��

  • Mama Julie’s Taco Meat
     
    4 lbs. ground beef 
    4 slices of bacon ( more of less if you want ) 
    1-2 cups chopped onion
    2-3 tsp. cumin – You might need more if it isn’t fresh ground or you have had it a while. 
    2 tsp. ground coriander 
    2 Tbsp. mild chili powder – you can use hot if you like it hotter however I make this so everyone can eat it in my family…but hey you do you!!! 
    1 Tbsp. onion powder
    1 Tbsp. dried oregano
    1 Tbsp. garlic powder 
    1 – 1 ½ Tbsp. Lawry’s garlic salt 
    1 Tbsp. tomato paste 
    1 Knorr Homestyle Stock Beef tub
    1 tsp. Lakanto monkfruit or sweetener of your choice.  You want a slight hint of sweetness to balance out the spices.    
    2 tsp. sweet smoked paprika 
    Fresh ground black pepper 
    Lettuce washed and dried ready to go for the
    Bowls.
    Lime wedges – you can squeeze a little fresh lime juice on each bowl or allow each person to do it for themselves. 
    See below for toppings. 
     
    Now no joke I will at times triple this recipe and make 12 pounds of ground beef at a time.  Some goes for the current week and the rest will go in the freezer for future easy meals. If your making this for the first time however you might want to stick with the base recipe.  
     
    Allow your pot to warm up before adding the bacon.  This will help whatever your cooking not too stick.  Fry the bacon until it is done and set aside so it can cool.  Once the bacon has cooled we are going to chop it up and add it back into our taco meat for additional flavor!!! The bits and pieces and bacon fat will be left behind to cook our other ingredients in.  If you used a lot of bacon you may want to remove some of the bacon fat.  
     
    Cook the onions for several minutes or until they have a little color to them.  Add in your ground beef and all the herbs and spices.  Chop up your bacon into small pieces and add that back into the pot.  While the ground beef cooks the bits of bacon will render down a little bit and release their yummy flavor and baste the rest of your beef!!! Cook until the ground beef is all done.  
     
    Notes:  Now I like to make this up on the weekends and have it ready for everyone for the week. If you aren’t low carb you can use this for tacos and one trick I started doing for the non keto folks in my family is that I take two torillas and put cheese in the middle and pan fry it just like a quesadilla.  Before it gets too crispy I remove it and use this entire quesadilla as my taco shell. Not only is it delicious but the cheese in the middle keeps your tortilla from tearing. 
     
    Toppings I like to use: 
     
    Guacamole and salsa or ( pico de gallo ) see my video for a recipe on that if you want. 
    Grated cheese
    Sliced olives
    Sour cream
    Cilantro 
    Sliced green onion
    Sliced radishes  
     
    Note:  You can also use the taco meat on top of scrambled eggs in the morning and top with whatever toppings you want.  It makes an excellent breakfast bowl.  
     
    This is also great when you have company coming over.  You can put all the toppings out and have the taco meat keeping warm in a crock pot on low.

  • Is this a commercial? I can’t tell the difference anymore all morning I thought it was a video It was a commercial I thought it was a commercial it was a video!

  • I’m definitely going to try this!! It looks delicious, filling and fresh:)
    Also, you are absolutely a stunning goddess �� thanks for sharing!

  • I love the name sweet potato soul! And I like the fact that you use oil and some salt too! Great job ������ I subscribed!!!! Can’t wait to see more! Thanks ��

  • Yum!!! I can’t wait to try this! Iam flirting with being vegan, but really vegetarian right now and I can’t believe how much better I feel and how yummy Whole Fresh foods are!!!!

  • I’m a new subscriber, and I love all of your videos! It’s nice to find a healthy YouTube channel that’s not all about being vegan. ��

  • Whenever I am going to roast veggies like this, I get a gallon size storage or freezer bag, add some oil and herbs salt and pepper and I just mix everything until coated in the bag, and then pour onto my parchment paper on the cookie sheet. Works great. Just thought I would throw that in there. Great video though.

  • I have a question: I have been attempting to eat more vegan meals. I notice that a lot of vegan dressing recipes use maple syrup. Doesn’t that make it too sweet? I have maple syrup (the ‘real’ stuff) but have been hesitant to use it in a salad dressing. I have never been fond of sweet dressings….thank you

  • Hello, I am new to your channel and love it. Is there a substitution for the hemp hearts.  My job does not  allow me to use anything with hemp in it….Thanks for sharing…Debbie

  • Hi these look great I’m searching power bowls to include in my meal prep. What are the calories in these bowls and the protein/ carb deficits? I need a high protein low carb meal prep option.

  • That avocado pit tipis just genius!! I didn’t know that, so cool!
    Also, if you cut the corn off the cob before cooking, it cooks faster, it’s easier to season and you don’t need as much water 😉

  • looks incredible but who has the time to make 9 separate components to their lunch? I would only make this for a party and have a taco bar.

  • These Power Bowls do look great and it’s good to know that they’re easy to make (and cheaper as in the fancy restaurants) But I do wonder how do you eat from a stuffed bowl like this? Mixing the ingredients before? Anyway, great video as always and you both are such talented, charismatic girls!

  • solo empaquetados… mucho alimento precocido.. a los latinos no creo que nos gusten muchos… creo que es mas sano lo natural… gracias por la ideas… el proceso si déjamelo a mi…. 😉

  • YUM!!!! This is perfect for our family of diverse eaters. My daughter is a vegetarian. My husband is a carnivore and I am an omnivore. LOL! Meal planning is CHALLENGING to say the least. Ha! Thanks for sharing your always wonderful ideas! It’s great to have more choices. Love and hugs, Kristin!

  • I made this. with some slight variants. but the “taco meat” and the salad are absolutely divine. I did mine as wraps. and happened to use a taco seasoning packet. ( UK adobo peppers/chipotle peppers can be hard to come by and I had the seasoning pk in.) I also subbed put lentils for Black lentils. ( This seems like a lot of subs now I come to write them down) I am not a vegan. I am not a vegetarian. I am choosing to eat less meat as part of my lifestyle and this will definitely be a repeat feature on my menu! thank you!

  • OMG, Its an Excellent Upload and ❤ Simply Awesome Thumbs Up..Thank you so much for upload & Sharing this Wonderful video with us. Stay connected & Blessed. My Dear Friend..❤❤❤

  • wonderful video! I looked very good…Commet. please….Passing Notes Approach by Bass Line…Custom or Thumb Over(Jimi Hendrix..or..John Mayer.)?research material. http://youtube.com/watch?v=EgffYEquioA … What do you think about this? please..listen to the guitar and ask to subscribe..

  • NOW THATS A DELICIOUS FRESH AMAZING SPEAD!!! Girl I love bowls… And your bowl is the F BOMBBB!!! �������� WOW! You rocked this out girl! Love ya honey! ��

  • That ground beef chopper looks neat, I’ve never seen one of those before! And those taco bowls look so delicious! You make Keto look good!

  • Avocado is not that healthy as some people think. It has very much fat. You should eat it 1 day every 2 week or make an avocado smoothie with a ripe banana if you like add some sugar. No hate but it looks good

  • Looks delicious. I would love to see more lentil meat substitutes. I have Hashimoto’s and it’s not recommended that I do any soy type products.

  • It’s worth pointing out in case people don’t know: Wait til the food has fully cooled before putting it in the fridge, or you’ll make yourself very ill

  • tried this and was surprised, if you do it right it’ll easily make 6 portions. To add a little more carbs I included some mini tortillas to make tacos
