One Bowl Wonders: greens

Italians Do It Better

By Gina Caputo

Italians Do It Better
Hands-down one of my most favorite dishes to make (and EAT) ever. Risotto is always going to be somewhat labor intensive with the constant stirring and ladling of broth but it's a super fun dish to cook with friends hanging out at the kitchen counter while playing music. In my house, we celebrate the Italian tradition of Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve and this is a family favorite. This is comfort food at its finest and the addition of lemon brings some light, high notes to a rich and creamy dish.

Down To Earth

Down To Earth
This earthy bowl works wonders for supporting you feeling grounded and stable amidst the winds of change, which makes it perfect for Fall. Lentils are an excellent source of vegetarian protein and have a great texture in soups and stews when you cook them right! The humble potatoes take the earthiness to an all new level - its like a hug in a bowl. This One Bowl Wonder can be made with sausage of various kinds, including tofu-based sausage or go without it!

Rigatoni alla Pasta Day

By Gina Caputo

Rigatoni alla Pasta Day
Technically not a One Bowl Wonder because we're serving the arugula in a second bowl! But 10/17/19 is National Pasta Day in the US so consider this a SPECIAL EDITION One Bowl Wonder for a very, very important holiday! This exquisite dish can be made vegan or omni with your choice of pastas and the tomato sauce is boss. You'll never buy bottle sauce again, this CHANGES YOU.

Feel The Beet

By Gina Caputo

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.

More Than Meets The Eye

By Gina Caputo

More Than Meets The Eye
This may looks like nothing more than green spaghetti but it is LOADED with super greens and plant-based protein with some good fats to boot! As summer turns to Fall, some of us may be feeling the pull towards comfort foods. This fits the bill without sacrificing balanced nutrition. Did I mention it's freakin' delicious and super easy to make?!

Rocky Mountain High

By Gina Caputo

Rocky Mountain High
At the special request of the US Probation Officers of Wyoming, I have created a One Bowl Wonder recipe that would work well with elk, since many of them hunt for their family's food. The early fall flavors of this bowl would also be amazing with vegan meatballs made from chickpeas and mushrooms! And since Colorado's Palisade peaches are in season, I couldn't resist including them too!

Come Clean

By Gina Caputo

Come Clean
This bowl is squeaky clean so if you’ve been feeling polluted lately, this healthy bowl is an easy way out. You mix quinoa and steamed cauliflower as a foundation and then bring steamed sweet potatoes and kale to the party. Top if off with a cool and creamy miso-yogurt sauce and sprinkle with hemp seeds that bring protein, fiber and omega fats! Coming clean’s not so bad after all!
