Great news. My eat-your-meals-in-bowls obsession has resulted in me devoting a whole section of the blog (and Pinterest) to “bowl meals.”
Yes, now, you’ll be able to search the blog for “bowl meals.” You know, a bunch of flavors all in one bowl.
This is how I prefer to eat and let me explain why.
First off, “bowl meals” shouldn’t be confused simply with pasta dishes. Yes, it’s best to eat pasta in bowls (so they sauce can be slurped up afterwards, of course!)
I’m talking about meals like Buddha bowls. Meals where it makes sense to put everything into a bowl, because then you can assemble the “perfect bite” (as my husband coins it.) You can fork a bunch of different ingredients and have that flavor-packed bite.
Take today’s recipe for example. This isn’t a pasta. It’s not a soup, it’s not a salad, it’s not an entree really. So what the heck is it?!
IT’S A BOWL!
I’m a big fan of these bowls, because I’m always in the mood for 32 different meals. For example, when I went to make this recipe, I wanted something hearty, but I also wanted a lot of veggies and a savory sauce.
So, I roasted some veggies, made butternut squash noodles and whipped together a quick maple tahini. But what about protein? I tossed in some lentils and voila, a complete meal that would look odd all spread out on a plate… but in a bowl, wowza.
