Ok ok ok, the name of this dish isn’t pretty. Frozen Vegetable Power Bowl??? What kind of meal is that? Well it’s what I’ve been eating for lunch (or some variation of) at work practically every day for a while now. It’s easy, takes minimal planning, and almost no thought. Perfect for when I don’t plan ahead and have no idea what to bring for lunch.
This month, The Recipe ReDux challenged us to share a healthy recipe for a power bowl, so I just figured I’d share what I eat on a regular basis.
There is no real “recipe” for this. It’s more of an idea, really, and you can change it to suit your tastebuds.
How to make a Frozen Vegetable Power Bowl
Make some rice, quinoa, couscous, or other grain ahead of time. Add about 1/2 cup or so into a portable container.
2. Frozen Vegetables-
Add a frozen vegetable mix. I really like Trader Joe’s “Soycutash” or marinated grilled eggplant, zucchini, and red peppers.
3. Avocado (optional)
4. Finishing touches-
Can be a drizzle of oil, sea salt, sesame seeds, whatever you want to add!
By the time I eat lunch, the vegetables are thawed. If I added avocado, I’ll just eat it cold. If not, then I normally warm it up in the microwave. And that’s it! It only takes about 2 minutes to prepare in the morning!
My favorite combinations are couscous, soycutash, and avocado, or rice and marinated grilled vegetable mix.
