When I haven’t planned dinner in advance (aka meal planning) and I’m crunched for time and don’t want to run downstairs to the grocery store, I’ll make a bowl.
Bowls are an easy way to pack in many flavors, nutrients, colors, and textures. I love bowl meals because you can just pack in whatever flavors you want or whatever you have left in your fridge and magically, once it’s in bowl form, it tastes delicious!
Seriously, I feel like bowls have magical powers.
Bowl meals also make you feel like a boss in the kitchen. There’s no fancy cooking skills required, just a skillet and a bowl. Long story short, I’m a big fan of bowl meals and today, I’m sharing one with you that I originally put on Instagram and everyone asked for the recipe!
Since I’m trying to make more everyday recipes, I figured this was a good place to start: something I literally whipped up in 20 minutes for dinner.
Things I always have in my pantry are lentils and sweet potatoes. I’m never at a loss for dinner ideas, because at the very least, I know I have a vitamin-packed veggie and a heart-healthy protein (lentils.) Top with avocado (which I always have in my fridge) and a green (I had leftover brussels sprouts from this recipe), and voila: a meal in minutes!
I served Lu’s with two fried eggs, because he doesn’t like eating things without a sauce. Personally, I don’t think this bowl needs a sauce, especially because the kale and brussels sprouts are packed with a salty soy sauce punch.
However you enjoy this bowl, let me know – would you like to see more recipes like this?
