grain bowl in a new bowl

I got a new bowl! So I decided to test it out by making a grain bowl. Grain bowls are nice because the grain is warm.  If you also leave the other ingredients out for a bit and let them come to room temperature, you’ll get a warm, satisfying meal that hasn’t had a bunch of the nutrients zapped out by cooking.  Here’s what it’s in it…

Ingredients
Your favorite bowl :-)
12oz cooked of healthy grain, e.g. TruRoots Sprouted Rice & Quinoa Blend
8oz spinach
4 roma tomatoes
2 persian cucumbers
1 haas avocado
2 full sheets nori
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup soy milk
1/4 cup walnuts
A pinch of salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. Cook the grain (I just use a rice cooker)
  2. Rough chop tomatoes, cucumbers, and 1/2 of the avocado (save other half for dressing)
  3. Slice nori into short, thin strips
  4. Dressing: put other half of avocado, apple cider vinegar, soy milk, and pinch of salt and pepper into a food processor or similar contraption and blend/chop until smooth
  5. Chop/crush walnuts (not too small, though)

Assembly

  1. Put grain in first
  2. Then the spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, and avocado chunks
  3. Sprinkle on the nori
  4. Add the dressing
  5. Top with walnuts

Oh, and this bowl is pretty big, too :-)

With a Coke  for size reference — of course I didn’t drink it!  :-)
