What’s not to like about a complete meal that’s easy to throw together, satisfying, robustly healthy and delicious? A popular trend in plant-based eating is “The Bowl.” It’s one of the most versatile meals, requiring no recipe. It’s simply the bounty from the farmers markets mixed in with leftovers from last night, dressed up with greens, and tossed with a little flavor.
Below are a bunch of ideas on the types of nourishing foods that work well as elements in your favorite bowl. Mix it up! Try new things! The beauty of the bowl is that it’s a low-fuss meal because it’s all about what you have on hand.
Brown / Black or Wild Rice
Whole Wheat Pasta
Chick Peas / regular or roasted
Fruit and Vegetables / raw, steamed, roasted
Red Pepper/ raw or roasted
Dash of hot sauce
