Gado Gado Bowl

Updated: Aug 9, 2020

The feedback I get from this bowl is like non other. It's so simple, so yummy, perfect for a mid-week dinner and yet, enough to wow any friends you're having over.

I personally prepare the potatoes a day ahead of time because the process of cooking and cooling potatoes helps to form Resistant Starch. Resistant Starches are a type or prebiotic, which means they provide an ideal food source for the beneficial bacteria living in our large intestine.

I hope you love it!
