If you haven't discovered the grain bowl yet, I think you'll find them a great choice for a plant-based lifestyle and this Green Goddess Grain Bowl is a great one to try first.
It's really a meal that would traditionally be served separately on your plate. However, in this concept, everything is tossed into a bowl. The presentation is lovely and the combinations are endless.
You’ll notice the recipe calls for 2 cups of cooked grains and it allows you to choose the type of grain you want. Grains have different textures and flavors and vary just slightly from each other.
If you want to learn more about the “top 4 healthiest grains” we have included a nice article that goes into details.
Take a look at these plant-based recipes:
- Barley Bean Salad with Cauliflower Rice
- Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad
- Mushroom Quinoa Pilaf
- Mushroom Veggie Tacos
This recipe also allows you to choose the types of seeds you like most. Sunflower, chia, hemp and the list goes on but how much do you really know about these tiny powerhouses?
These little seeds contain BIG benefits and flavor too, read more here.
When I mentioned above the combinations were endless, I wasn’t kidding. You can make so many variations by just changing up the grains and seeds each time you make a bowl. You can also play with herbs and veggies that suit your taste or the season.
One more thing I’d like to point out is this recipe calls for bread crumbs, store bought or homemade. It is so simple to make your own bread crumbs you really should do it. This way you can control what goes into “the breadcrumbs” and pick the type of bread you wish to use.
I’ve included this simple video tutorial on how to make homemade breadcrumbs.
