Summertime Protein Power
While I didn't originally intend to make this a One Bowl Wonder post, it go so much action on Instagram that I'm putting it here after all! It's a kicked up caprese salad that uses chickpea pasta AND chickpeas as well as that inimitable summertime fresh corn. Vegetarian protein at its best!

Lime In The Coconut Chickpea Stew

Lime In The Coconut Chickpea Stew
One day during quarantine I got a wild hair to use mostly pantry items to make a stew but I still wanted it to be high in protein. So I ended up making a chickpea on chickpea stew with a coveted can of coconut milk! This is easy, delicious and can be served on its own, over rice or you can dip pita or naan in it. AND if you listen to Harry Nilsson's song Coconut while you make it, it's guaranteed to be infused with that special spice called FUN.

When Worlds Collide

When Worlds Collide
This One Bowl Wonder was born of a deep love of both Italian and Indian food! It includes the best of both worlds all living harmoniously (and deliciously) in the same bowl. This accommodating OBW can be made vegan, vegetarian or omnivore and the base can be gluten-free rice, pasta, polenta or even mashed potatoes!

Feel The Beet

Feel The Beet
Root veggies are to Fall as fruits are to Summer so to kick off Fall, I always bring out the beets! Beets are high in important vitamins and minerals, are thought to support athletic performance, are high in fiber and may support brain health! If you aren't sure if you like them, this could be a great dish to try them again. The apple brings a brightness to the earthy beets and the saltiness of the feta/vegan feta is a partner. Git some.

Summer's Greatest Hits

Summer's Greatest Hits
If you could put all of summer's greatest hits into a single bowl, this would be it. Juicy watermelon meets tangy pineapple meets sweet corn meets creamy avocado all partying together on a bed a hefty romaine lettuce and garbanzos with party favors in the forms of salty pepitas and cilantro leaves. As August slides into September, this is a One Bowl Wonder to celebrate summer's bounty and the delicious things in life.

Let's Dilly Dally
The combination of zucchini and dill is just...magnificent. I'm not sure why. Dill and cucumbers, for sure. Maybe because zucchini look like cucumbers?! Whatever the reason, they are two things that love each other so I never make zucchini without its pal Dill. This wholesome bowl is EASY and when there's fresh corn (summer!), add that. When there isn't, you can leave it out and its still delicioso.

Soul Satisfaction

By Gina Caputo

Soul Satisfaction
This is like a hug in a bowl! The ricotta cheese (nut or regular) coats the noodles and then broiled broccoli, kale and garbanzo beans contrast perfectly with the creamy goodness of the noodles. The lemon adds just the right spark for this bowl to truly speak to your soul. This is a great one for when you've had a hard day and need a hug.
