I love a good “market” bowl. Every week, I head to the farmer’s market (or grocery store) to see what’s in season and looking good. This time of year, the market’s are overflowing with some of my favorite veggies like squash, carrots, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli. What I love about a bowl is it’s a no-recipe recipe – I modify it every time depending on what’s already in my fridge and what looks good at the market!
Beyond the veggies, I like to stick to having some type of grain (I love brown rice in this bowl) and a satisfying crunch of nutrient-rich toasted almonds. Almonds are full of fiber and protein, helping to keep you satiated and full. Don’t forget to add something tangy and pickled. I picked up kimchi and sweet and spicy pickles from the Union Square Greenmarket, but you can top it with any of your favorite fermented food or pickle. Enjoy as is if you prefer a vegan option or top it with a fried egg. What really brings it all together is the almond-tamari sauce. Drizzle it all over your bowl and dig in!
