Recipes: One Bowl Wonder

Pumpkin Chili

By Gina Caputo

Pumpkin Chili
Hands down the best chili I've ever made or ever eaten! Who knew?! I don't identify as a major pumpkin lover but it lends something really special to this spicy, protein rich chili that's perfect for a chilly night and makes amazing leftovers! The flavors just keep melding! It's also SUPER easy to make with most ingredients coming from your pantry! You can easily make it vegetarian by omitting the sausage and adding your favorite hot sauce!

White Bean & Kale Soup

By Gina Caputo

White Bean & Kale Soup

Kale yeah! This is SOUPer simple and delicious. I recommend taking the time to soak dried cannelini beans (I order mine online) because I find the canned ones of this particular bean are just mush. And that little blast of lemon juice at the end? Absolutely zingy delicious!

Fall The Way

Fall The Way
Once apples come in season, wild horses couldn't drag me away from them. So begins my Fall One Bowl Wonder season with something that looks a little like this healthy and high in protein bowl that is easily made vegan! I'm low key obsessed with meals that include all 6 Ayurvedic flavors: astringent, spicy, bitter, sour, sweet, salty. This one ticks all the boxes!

Shrimp, Corn & Coconut Rice Bowl

By Gina Caputo

Shrimp, Corn & Coconut Rice Bowl
This is summer comfort food at it's best! Somehow it's creamy, soothing and delicious without feeling heavy. Shrimp and corn are a classic combo (grits anyone?) that are upleveled with the flavors of coconut and a little jalapeño kick. The acid from the lime at the end is LIFE!

Summer BBQ Bowl

By Gina Caputo

Summer BBQ Bowl
The New York Times recently posted a grilled potato salad recipe that inspired me to create an entire BBQ meal (minus the watermelon for dessert) as a One Bowl Wonder. BBQ, corn and potato salad all in one! This may not be the prettiest OBW I've ever made but it is definitely one of the tastiest, especially if you love BBQ sauce like I do. Can easily be made vegan!

Watermelon Salad

By Gina Caputo

Watermelon Salad
This is such a simple One Bowl Wonder and my absolute favorite for the hottest summer days. Sweet watermelon combines beautifully with salty feta, bitter arugula and spicy grilled chicken or tofu with a tangy lemon vinagrette. Major crowd pleaser right here.

Chicken/Chickpea Salad

By Gina Caputo

Chicken/Chickpea Salad
When I was living in Kansas City, my favorite place to eat was a luncheonette called Happy Gillis. Mismatched s&p shakers, great sandwich bread, epic chocolate chip cookies and the world's greatest chicken salad. I do not consider myself a chicken salad person. At all. But I love to ask what the staff loves and someone recommended this and I've never looked back. It's INCREDIBLE. I included a vegetarian option too!

Overnight Oats with Mango Milk

By Gina Caputo

Overnight Oats with Mango Milk
I loved my Overnight Oats with Blueberry Milk so much that I started to get creative with more fruit milks in my overnight oats. And this tropical delight was a big WIN!! Mangoes are in season right now - you can use frozen ones or chop up fresh mango if you prefer. Cool oats are especially good in the summer when you don't want a bowl of hotness to start your day!
