This hearty vegan meal is satisfying and flavorful. Ginger, peanut sauce, fresh cilantro and story tamari – umami galore. This warm Mushroom Kale Rice Bowl contains a kale salad so good you could eat it on its own, fluffy brown rice and plentiful amounts of portobello mushrooms – lightly sautéed in oil and a splash of nutty tamari or soy sauce – salt and pepper. Serve this bowl as is or add a side of tofu triangles if you’d like. I’ve added some crisp diced apple alongside this plate as well. If you want to fall in love with kale, rice and mushrooms – give this healthy-delicious bowl a try..
Veggies are in! And this bowl is loaded with them. Onions, kale, cilantro, mushrooms all infused with peanut-ginger-garlic flavor. Dive into a bowl of veggies this January – don’t wait for spring to start a salad habit. Plus, cooked or roasted veggie salads are the perfect combination of fresh produce and warm home-cooked meals.
