Redemption introduces the new Temple of Ten Buddha Bowl

Get all your ‘10-a-day’ in one meal – it doesn’t matter what you do for the rest of the day!

There was a audible gasp of horror and a cynical reaction on Twitter when scientists recently revealed that the ‘5-a-day’ fruit and vegetable target was in fact INCORRECT, and we should be eating 10 portions of fruit and vegetables every day in order to stay healthy.

With most of us struggling to even hit 5 portions of fruits and vegetables in a day, the new target of 10 seems completely unachievable. But not any more! We’ve just launched the ‘Temple of Ten’ bowl containing 10 portions of vegetables in just one delicious dish. Yes, it’s massive.

We’ve been getting lots of rave revies for our plant-based food but now we have upped the ante and created the only dish in London to contain the full daily target of vegetables in our new 10-a-day ‘Temple of Ten’ bowl, for only £15.

This plentiful bowl features at least 10 key life-giving ingredients totaling at least 800g of vegetables. As well as the daily nutritional target being reached, the bowl itself is tasty, delicious and satisfying.

It features:
• roasted deep purple sweet potatoes drizzled with a peanut & coconut sauce;
• Japanese style sautéed kale, mushrooms, spinach and broccoli with a rich miso, fresh ginger and tamari sauce;
• pickled turmeric and ginger cauliflower with nigella seeds,
• a crunchy slaw-type salad with red cabbage, julienned carrots, peppers, mange tout, with a pineapple chilli dressing with sesame seeds.

The dish is a contemporary offering designed in the style of Buddhist Temple Food, which, as well as being vegan, also traditionally avoids pungent ingredients like garlic, onions, asafoetida, shallot and leeks which are thought to sometimes overexcite our systems.

The dish was invented by Executive Chef and Creative Director Andrea Waters, who says: “It was a known secret in nutrition circles that the 5-a-day target was invented because 10-a-day seemed too much and would put people off even trying. What we’re doing at Redemption is giving people the opportunity to get to that target in one delicious dish. So you can do what you like for the rest of the day!”
