< 1 min read
Summary

The garlic sauce for this grain bowl is super creamy and it makes quite a bit so if you like your bowls super saucy then you’ll have plenty. If you prefer your bowls on the drier side, then save some sauce for later in the week. This bowl has all of the elements of a healthy meal — fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and the perfect balance of plant-based fat, protein, and carbohydrate to keep you satisfied and nourished.

Chef's Notes

Substitutions
As always, any vegetables lounging around your kitchen are great for bowl-making!

In place of quinoa try organic brown rice, farro, wheat berries, or sweet potato.

Use any sprouts you have on hand in place of alfalfa and bean sprouts.

Layer it up
The options here are endless! Top the bowl with herbs like dill, cilantro, basil, or oregano.

Add additional protein like grilled tempeh or tofu, lentils, or seeds.

Sprinkle with chia, hemp, or flax seeds for a nutritional crunch.

Sprinkle with nutritional yeast for some cheesiness.

Garlic sauce uses
Depending on whether you like your bowls super creamy or on the lighter side, you may have leftover garlic sauce. Thin it out with a bit of water to make a delicious salad dressing or keep it as is to pour over baked sweet potatoes or a pasta dish.
