This bowl contains every ingredient ingredients for a happy Monday, wine on the side.
I mean, this bowl is fully loaded with all of the goodies, and it’s so beyond colorful. I LOVE it! I love color in the dead of colorless winter. Oddly, I also love winter white, but not when it comes to my food.
Ok wait, I take that back, give me white cheese + carbs and I’d be pretty happy.
And I mean it isn't exactly winter (aka APRIL) but we had snow this weekend so I am going to go off of that logic. How crazy is that? I mean, don't get me wrong I love a good snow, but everything in its own time people. Because snow in April does not seem very logical, does it? Ugh, totally over snow, but that’s just my life. I better suck it up, cause it’s going to snow through May…and possibly a little into June, but man I really hope that will so not be the case.
Another reason I may be SUPER into the spring-like eats a bit earlier this year is probably due to Easter coming so dang prematurely. I know I’ve said this already (like four times), but man this whole Easter in March thing is totally throwing me off. And passover in late April: fugetboutit
So anyway, this bowl. Let's talk about this bowl!
Somewhere in the last two weeks my cravings have switched to all things SPRING. I know, surprise right?! For some odd reason I have been craving really bright, fresh and healthy foods. I say this is odd because as I write this while it is actually snowing out (so you can guess I wrote this Saturday) Thinking I should be craving stews and chilis, I am actually reaching for fresh bowls and salads. It is my ultimate comfort food: a ton of veggies and a ton of chocolate
So I have a quite a thing for Vietnamese food, first and foremost. I love it all. When I lived in NYC, I scoped out the best Vietnamese food I could find (hint: it is at Saigon Shack in Greenwich Village). Now, for the most part, it has taken me a long time to figure out the right flavors of Vietnamese food. However, this bowl, usually made of things I have lying around, so it can get into my face faster (which is the point of all food tbh). Carrots, cucumbers, kale, radishes are all tossed on a bed of rice and topped with this tofu that seriously tastes like CRACK. It is so good! Finally, I kick up the spice with a Sriracha tahini sauce. Because I like the heat. I can handle the heat. The bowl is totally vegan as is, but feel free to add whatever protein you feel like (or a scoop of ice cream... you know if you're into that.)
