Supergreen Bowl

The Supergreen Bowl, page 266


Sigh. I really don't like being over-busy, but this is One of Those Weeks. With Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day, the girls have three different ballet folklorico performances this week, in addition to practices. Piled on top of that are a few medical appointments, cleaning and laundry from the last camping trip and preparations for the next one, and all the usual schoolwork, errands, grocery shopping, housework, etc. etc. Again, sigh.

A bowl dinner seemed like a good grab-and-go option for tonight. I went with the Supergreen Bowl since I already had some quinoa in the refrigerator, some edamame in the freezer, and I loves me some o' that goddess dressing. The broccoli and greens were easy enough to chop up and steam in the microwave, and before I knew it, these bowls had practically assembled themselves. I tossed them in a soft-sided cooler and hauled everything along with us for the evening. After the girls were done dancing tonight at a community performance for Cinco de Mayo, we headed to a nearby park and enjoyed our bowls while watching the various ducks, geese, and other waterfowl in the creek.

With the quinoa and edamame, these bowls were not only delicious, but packed with plant-powered protein. I used roasted garlic in this batch of Green Goddess Garlic Dressing, and I think it turned out perfectly. I really liked this bowl combination, and will definitely eat it again.

Has anyone else tried any of the suggested bowls from Appetite for Reduction? Do you have a favorite?

I am about to. I have a few random ingredients and now it needs to come together.

Well, the carrot ginger dressing is better cold. And probably when it's not two-weeks old. I tried it cold and much more prefer it then. I totally just ruined my dinner. It's edible but not appetizing.

Aw, that's a bummer! Probably some of the bowls do better at room temp, like this Supergreen bowl, while others are good warm, like the Mexicana Kale bowl. Fresh dressing is probably also the way to go - I don't keep mine around for longer than 5-7 days, otherwise they get a little sketchy, I think...

I've made the sushi salad a few times. It makes a GREAT lunch. This looks excellent and even more healthy though, I'll make it soon!

Thanks, Josie! I'll be interested in hearing how it goes. :-)
