At least once a week, I make a meal in a bowl for dinner. I don’t know what it is about meal bowls, but I always look forward to those nights. Is it the convenience of serving everything in a bowl? Is it the way you can stir all the ingredients together and get a little bit of everything in each bite? Is it the ease of having one thing to make for dinner rather than planning a protein, veggie and grain? I guess it’s probably all those things.
If you’re also a bowl person, I have good news: there’s a new cookbook by Jackie Sobon of Vegan Yack Attack that’s all about meal bowls. Yes! Vegan Bowl Attack! is packed with more than 100 one-dish plant-based recipes, ranging from breakfast to dessert. Some of my favorites include Mushroom Wild Rice Slow Cooker Stew, Orange Cauliflower Soba Chow Mein Bowls, and Seitan Satay Bowls. I find myself making the same meal bowls over and over again and this book has given me dozens of new ideas to help mix things up a little bit.
This Kimchi Bowl recipe is a perfect example of what you’ll find in this book—it’s an easy recipe that’s full of flavor and healthy ingredients. You can make each component of the bowl in advance and assemble later for work lunches or quick dinners.
