Just got back from a two-day conference in New Orleans and spent the day getting unpacked and resettled—laundry, cleaning, a long walk with Hammie, a little workout. Dinner presented me with a dilemma because after a couple days of restaurant and airport food I really wanted something healthy and nourishing, but I didn’t want to go out to the grocery store. We didn’t have a whole lot to work with at home, but I managed to find an assortment of ingredients that came together in a Buddha bowl deliciously and healthfully.
For each bowl, layer the following ingredients in the following order:
A handful of raw spinach (1-1/2 cups or so)
1 Tbs veggie broth sprinkled over spinach
1/2 cup cooked rice
1/3 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup cooked wheat berries
1/2 cup canned spicy black beans
1/2 cup roasted sweet potato chunks
Warm in microwave for a minute-and-a-half.
1/2 cup shredded raw cabbage
1/3 cup shredded raw carrot
1 Tbs sliced scallions
1 tsp ginger dressing
1 Tbs chopped tamari almonds
As always this recipe is completely flexible. Use what you have. A combination of warmed and raw, crunchy and smooth, and a little sauce or liquid makes it good. Enjoy!
