Bowls: Vibrant Recipes with Endless Possibilities
Create satisfying, nourishing, quick-to-prepare bowls built around grains, noodles, greens, and broths and find inspiration to customize your own creations
Want to cook healthier low-stress dinners, improve your lunch game, and find meals that can be prepped mostly in advance? Bowls are for you! The beauty of building a meal in a bowl is its versatility, and this book helps you compose 75 interesting bowls that incorporate a multitude of flavors and textures, from a Harvest Salad Bowl (abundant with squash, apples, and goat cheese) to a Cuban-Style Pork Mojo Quinoa Bowl, all while streamlining prep work to keep them casual and fun. Where to start? Choose your base–we've got chapters based on grains, noodles, greens, and broths–and then peruse options as diverse as Seared Tuna Poke Bowl, Green Fried Rice Bowl, Tandoori Chicken Zoodle Bowl, and Pho Bowl. Components within recipes are frequently interchangeable, so if you've got pre-cooked grains on hand, or a rotisserie chicken, you can easily swap these foods in. (Lunch tip: Most bowls can also be made the day before and transported.)
Feel like improvising? Turn to our Bowl Basics section which offers 50 components, from pilaf-style quinoa to Quick Pickled Carrot Ribbons. Our vibrant Beet Tzatziki sauce or crunchy Seed Brittle might be just the ticket to transform your bowl improvisation into something special, and everything can be made in advance and stored. Looking to eat vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free? You'll find plenty of options here, plus full nutritional information for every recipe.
