Another new plant-based delivery and takeout concept has popped up in LA – Bowlila! But these healthy eats are all about the love of chickpeas.
Balila, a Lebanese dish consisting of chickpeas boiled with lemon juice, garlic, and various spices served as a hot mezze dish, is their Middle Eastern inspiration for Bowlila – but their bowls are inspired by different regions around the world like the Japanese Bowlila and Thai Red Curry Bowlila. Chickpea Bowls are the center of the menu enhanced with multicultural sauces and ingredients. Try the Japanese Bowlila stuffed with tofu croutons, roasted seaweed, furikake toasted sesame seeds, cucumber, pickled ginger, green onion, rainbow slaw, and sesame-miso sauce OR the Thai Red Curry Bowlila filled with mango, cucumber, tofu croutons, crispy fried onion, cilantro, peanuts, rainbow slaw, green onion, pickled ginger, and red coconut milk curry sauce.
You might like the Island Jerk Bowlila, the Argentinian Bowlila, Mexican Bowlila, Secret Sauce Bowlila, or the Classic Bowlila with cumin, lemon, chili flake, garlic oil, beet-pickled cauliflower, crispy fried onions, rainbow slaw, chili-lime corn crunchies, jalapeno.
All bowls are loaded with chickpeas on the bottom. Did you know chickpeas are high in protein and make an excellent replacement for meat in vegetarian and vegan diets? Chickpeas are great for losing weight since they’re loaded with fiber, which keeps you feeling fuller longer.
Our favorite dish is the warm Persian Pita with crispy chickpea fritters with housemade slaw, cucumbers, tomatoes, and a nut-free pesto and Persian yogurt all wrapped together for that perfect bite. You can make it a Bowl for Gluten-Free.
Try the gluten-free Pesto Mac with pesto cheese sauce, Chic Mango Pancakes (chickpea pancakes with mango sauce), or Crispy Italian Bites. Add Rosewater Lemonade to your order.
Build Your Own Bowlila Bowl at home too. The meal kits allow you to build your own bowls the way you like and is a fun way to dine for family and friends for 2-4 people. Perfect for the pandemic!
