Instant Pot Coconut Curry Chicken

Instant Pot Coconut Curry Chicken
We had a freak September snow storm and after eating lots of cool grain bowls, grills, tacos and salads, it seemed like an invitation to bust out the ole Instant Pot again! After just a little prep in chopping, this one pot wonder has that glorious combo of tomatoes and coconut milk, is a breeze to make and is full of flavor. It also invites innovation with other veggies and can be made omni or vegan!

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!

Thai Chicken Salad

Thai Chicken Salad
I love how Thai food combines things I love like coconut milk, lime and cilantro.  I was craving those flavors and wanted a salad but needed something more substantial than just lettuce so I added some cilantro-lime basmati rice and basically made a chopped Thai salad with peanut sauce on top. It's a keeper!

Balanced Breakfast Bonanza

Balanced Breakfast Bonanza Bowl - Ayurveda Breakfast Bowl by Gina Caputo

When I make One Bowl Wonders, I love to combine flavors, textures and temperatures. When it comes to flavors, I try to include as many of the 6 Ayurvedic flavors as I possibly can. It is believed that the most well-balanced, nourishing meals reflect all 6 tastes: sweet, salty, sour, astringent, bitter, pungent (spicy). So when Kashi asked me to shift gears and make a breakfast One Bowl Wonder, I wanted to stay true to my process and combine hot oatmeal with cool, smooth yogurt and dry, crunchy Kashi as well as fold in all 6 Ayurvedic tastes!

Remember Your Roots

Remember Your Roots

I'm one of those people that orders the same thing EVERY time at my favorite restaurants. In this case, the Roots, Beans and Greens and Boulder's Tangerine is my go-to. This home version includes asparagus instead of greens for when it is in season and plentiful. Guaranteed to support your groundedness!

Lime In The Coconut Chickpea Stew

By Gina Caputo

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.

This accommodating OBW can be made vegan, vegetarian or omnivore and the base can be gluten-free rice, pasta, polenta or even mashed potatoes!

Pesto Powerball Soup

By Gina Caputo

Pesto Powerball Soup
This is a classic, hmmm what do I have in the kitchen One Bowl Wonder. I had the makings for soffritto (fancy Italian word for carrots, celery, and onions) which always makes me think of soup. That week, greens were hard to come by at the store but I had just made a pesto with supergreens and basil and still had it in a jar in the fridge. Add protein balls and it felt very rustic and old country in the best possible way.
