It's A Beautiful Bowl

Written by Terra | Mon, Jul 25, '16

There is something uniquely satisfying about one bowl meals. Part work of art, part downright convenient, these compact culinary masterpieces skirt convention and combine unexpected ingredients to make quick dinners that are fresh and healthy. If you are trying to eat clean this summer, you will especially love these bowl recipes from our menu.

1. Pucker and Spice Quinoa, Kale and Black Bean Bowl

You wouldn’t know it by the look of it, but this bowl packs a secretly sweet and hot sauce! This meal couldn’t get any easier, there are only 5 steps, and even the most novice chef will be done in 30 minutes or less. Looking for some protein in your life? Simply throw a chicken breast from our protein menu onto the grill while the quinoa is simmering.

2. Grilled Chicken and Caramelized Pineapple Salsa Rice Bowl

Two words: pineapple salsa. Of course there are lots of other good things in this bowl, but really, the salsa is the star. The general rule is to always have your wine sweeter than your food, so to complement the pineapple, a slightly sweet Gewürztraminer would be an adventurous choice.

3. Vegan Power Bowl

Vegan meals don’t have to be low on protein, and this power bowl lives up to its reputation. Packed with sweet potatoes, kale, onions, and spicy chickpeas, plan this bowl for dinner after a big workout when you need to replenish.

4. Terra Buddha Bowl

 The “Buddha Bowl” got its name because the bowl of food is packed so full that it has a rounded “belly” appearance on the top like the belly of a Buddha. The Terra Buddha Bowl is no exception, you will leave the table full and with plenty of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and even protein. Wow!

5. Happy Chicken Salad Bowl

Chicken Salad doesn’t have to include mayonnaise, sometimes it actually includes, you know, salad! Sweetness from the mangoes and blueberries juxtapose the spice of the jalapeno scallion mint dressing among the red quinoa and spinach. Simply put, this bowl will make you smile!

Clearly our bowls runneth over! For even more one bowl meals, check out our current menu.
