micro roast

leefromamericayesterday, i left my house for a quick jog around the block, and locked myself out. i ran nearly 5 miles to pick up my spare key. this bowl is the byproduct of that escapade 🙌🏻 sweet potato cooked in ghee, black bean dip (completely addicting and takes seconds to whip up. i cant get enough! recipe below!) onion+garlic free curry chicken (inspired by @shutthekaleup) from @belcampomeatco, micro cilantro, roasted cauliflower, brussels, and avocado on a bed of harissa dressed spinach leaves. it was too good! i’m recipe developing this morning then heading to the LA book fair this afternoon✌🏻hope everyone is having the best saturday! #bowlsbylee
1 can organic canned black beans
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp coriander (optional)
2 TBSP olive oil
~¼ water
Juice of ½ lemon

Seivarden/sphene coffeeshop AU

“Do you micro roast?” Seivarden asked, peering at the barista through the thick-lensed glasses she didn’t actually need.

The dead-eyed barista shook her head and said in a perfectly flat voice, “Do you know what your shirt says?”

The barista’s face didn’t change much as Seivarden explained, “It’s justice, propriety and benefit in Notai,” but one corner of her mouth turned up slightly.

my latest obsession: BUDDHA BOWLZ (which is just a fancy term for a bowl full of delicious + complete nutrition stuff)

Roasted Veggie Buddha Bowl (disclaimer: it is vegan but don’t be fooled, it’s probably the one and only vegan meal I will ever eat)

Spinach + micro greens
brown rice
Roasted sweet potato
Garlic-roasted asparagus
Sriracha-roasted chick peas
homemade Tahini dressing (tahini + lemon juice + garlic+ s+p + olive oil)


soooooooo good, I mean it. I never thought I would like something like this and it’s 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 you can literally add anything you want! I’m going to experiment with a Thai-style one tomorrow!

On the weekends we take a break from espresso beverages, well…usually anyways, and get into beans. We don’t crush through pounds of beans, but when a bag runs out it’s always fun to seek something new out.

As the last of our Sightglass ran out I acquired some beans from a new roastery, less then a year old, Northbound Coffee Roasters from Mt. Shasta, Ca. Quite imprsessed, good stuff.
