Easy ASF Dinner Bowls

Not long before the COVID-19 crisis, I got my family hooked on healthy (but super easy) bowls. They’re especially handy now with our food supply not exactly being guaranteed for the foreseeable future. (We haven’t learned any news to trigger alarm about being able to feed ourselves but are just being cautious.) We heavily prefer fresh produce but realize that supply may decrease in the near term with so much uncertainty.

This concept isn’t new, but it’s easy as hell and works with frozen foods or those you stash in the pantry for months at a time. Here’s my jam, as well as less-perishable alternatives:

Base: any whole, hearty grain (I love quinoa or unpelted wheat)

Veggies:

  • I roast cauliflower and broccoli with garlic powder, turmeric, sea salt, and ground black pepper, drizzled with olive oil —> about 30 minutes on high broil, tossing frequently
  • Wilted fresh spinach
  • Fresh avocado

Extras:

  • Nutritional yeast (vegan source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants)
  • Pepitas for some crunch (magnesium, manganese, iron, zinc, and copper)
  • Udo’s oil (essential fatty acids)
  • Trader Joe’s sriracha
  • Spicy hummus

Isolation-friendly hacks:

  • Swap for frozen cauliflower (floret or rice form)
  • Frozen spinach
  • Canned garbanzos – also great for texture

We do self-serve – take what you want, dump in a bowl and mix. Salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy!
