Today, I’m posting about something I’ve been doing, and craved more and more through my last pregnancy. Rainbow bowls, or Rainbow ingredients. We all have a lot going on, we have things that are begging for our time, so dinners that are nutritious tend to go out the window. Ease is key.
Are you ready for this? This dinner is ready in less than 30 minutes, contained a rainbow of colors (meaning a diverse cross section of nutrients as well), and filled us all up.
Easy. Here are the ingredients:
4 tbsp coconut oil
1 large red pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
2 medium carrots, diced
1 crown broccoli, roughly chopped
1 1/2 cup red cabbage, sliced
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 pinches chili powder
3 tsp liquid aminos (or coconut aminos)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 1/1 cup peas
pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups rice noodles (use the stuff you have)
3 cups hot water
Here’s the secret. Add things in the order that they’re listed. Peppers, onions, garlic, and carrots needs more time to cook, so put them in first. Then add the broccoli. Then cabbage. The time it takes to cut these things is all it takes to cook the previous items. No timing, no worrying, no pre-chopping. Add the noodles after you’ve mixed everything together, then cover with the water, bring to a boil and cook until the noodles are tender. Done.
You can add quinoa, rice, or even make biscuits to eat this with. These rainbow ingredients really go well with anything and keep your family healthier.
