We love bowls at Little Green. They are so easy to throw together, and they are really delicious and nutritious as a one-dish, complete meal. There are limitless combinations. What is in season? Do you want a heartier grains dish or no grains? What can you add that is green? What can you add that is crunchy?
A few bowl combos that I love:
*Black Bean, sweet potato, avocado, kale, and a lime crema.
*Roasted Cauliflower, red onion, black olive, sautéed spinach + capers.
*Sautéed mushrooms, spring onions, white beans, steamed swiss chard, parsley + lemon.
*Spaghetti squash, red cabbage, peanuts, peanut sauce, edamame, cilantro, and pickled ginger.
*Greek Salad Bowl: cucumber, black olives, red onion, cherry tomato, parsley, olive oil + salt.
The Riced Cauliflower Bowl is grain-free (thus, particularly great for dinner), and only requires one thing to be cooked (the riced cauliflower.) Plus, you can buy bags of riced cauliflower at Trader Joe’s, which makes things really easy and fully reduces the chopping. Recipe is now live in the recipes section of the website!
2 cups cauliflower rice (or you can use one bag of riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s)
oil cured black olives
red cabbage, thinly sliced
arugula, sliced into ribbons
artichoke hearts, chopped
- Heat a large skillet and cover with olive oil. Sauté the riced cauliflower for about 15 minutes, until cooked, tender, and some bits are browned.
- Distribute other ingredients into small serving bowls, and serve, allowing the diner to select how much of each “topping” they want.
- Add a little shake of cayenne pepper to your hummus!
