  • 1 Luvo So Cal Kale & Bean bowl

  • 2-3 falafels (you can make them from scratch, or to save time, find them pre-made at your local grocer)

  • ¼ cup hummus

  • 1 tsp chili oil

  • ¼ cup pickled/fermented veggies (we used a mix of sauerkraut and pickled carrots)

  • 1 handful greens of your choice (we used baby kale)

  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice and sea salt to taste


  1. Prepare your Luvo So Cal Kale & Bean bowl
  2. Grab a serving bowl and plate the Luvo entree. Make sure to leave space for the other ingredients.

  5. Squeeze the lemon on top of the bowl and sprinkle a little bit of sea salt. Serve and dig in!

Optional: serve with extra side of hot sauce if you want an extra punch of spice.
