Copycat: Flower Child's Mother Earth Bowl

My Version of the Flower Child Mother Earth Bowl

I discovered Flower Child here in Santa Monica. It has become a second home for my husband and I, and we bring all our out of town guests to this health mecca. They have a great menu where you can mix and match different sides, but I get the Mother Earth Bowl every. single. time. without fail. So, I decided to make a version of it at home.

Farro and Quinoa Blend:


1/2 cup Farro

1/2 cup Quinoa

2 cups Vegetable Broth

1/2 tsp Turmeric

  1. Add all ingredients to a small pot and bring to a boil.

  2. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until all liquid is absorbed.

While the quinoa is cooking, start your veggie prep, and the whole meal can come together in under 30 minutes!

Miso Sauce:

3 TBS Sweet Miso. I used this one

2 TBS Soy

1 TBS Rice Wine Vinegar

1 TBS Maple Syrup

Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside.



·       Bagged Greens (1 bag)

·       Sweet potatoes (2)

·       Carton of mushrooms

·       Head of Broccoli

·       1 White Onion

·       Olive oil

·       Salt

·       Pepper

·       2-3 Garlic Cloves

·       Rosemary (preferably fresh)

·       Avocado and tahini for topping


1.       Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2.       Chop your sweet potatoes and broccoli and season with 1 TBS olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Lay out on a baking sheet.

3.       Bake sweet potato and broccoli for 17-20 minutes. They will be nice and crispy.

4.       While the sweet potato and broccoli cook, slice onions into thin strips and cut mushrooms into fourths.

5.       Heat a deep pan on the stove top with 1 TBS olive oil and keep to a medium low heat.

6.       Add in sliced onions and cook for about 10 minutes until caramelized, then add mushrooms, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.

7.       Assemble your bowls! Start with a bed of greens, add farro and quinoa mixture, then your veggies! Finish the plate off with a drizzle of tahini and avocado.

Flower Child would be proud!
