‘The Glory BOWL’
I like meat. My family likes meat.
At first, the idea of tofu wasn’t acceptable with Jeff. No way was he eating that stuff let alone a meal without meat. Gross.
“This is a really yummy recipe”, I said, “I’m sure you’ll like it”.
That was quite a few years ago now.
Since then, everyone’s palettes have changed…for the better IMO.
Though I’m certain I will never fancy pickled herring, more food variety is found around here these days and that comes with age I suppose. More colours of the rainbow are eaten in this household and we all know that’s good for our health.
While I do enjoy meat, I also love all kinds of produce, certain starch carbs in moderation and trying out unusual ingredients. I came across Whitewater Cooks a while back and decided to give the Glory Bowl a whirl.
A bit tedious to make, it’s so worth it. The flavour and texture layering is amazing. Some crunch, some soft, some sweet, some salty and some fried…so good.
If you’re looking for a fresh new taste or wanting to try something new, I definitely recommend this dish.
Now off to buy some tahini for dinner tonight…food
8 cups cooked brown rice
2 cups beets, grated
2 cups carrots, grated
2 cups almonds, toasted
2 cups spinach leaves
2 cups tofu, cubed
Glory Bowl Dressing
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes*
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup tamari or soy sauce
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
2 tbsp tahini paste
Prepare your favorite brown rice and set aside.
Saute tofu cubes in a skillet.
Combine nutritional yeast flakes, water, tamari or soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, tahini and crushed garlic in blender to prepare the dressing.
Add oil in a steady stream. You will have leftover dressing to use again.
Assemble the bowls by placing cooked brown rice into 8 bowls, top with beets, carrots, spinach leaves, almonds and sauteed tofu cubes.
Drizzle bowls with dressing.
*Nutritional yeast flakes can be found at the Kootenay Co-op, or most natural food stores.
So good on any kind of salad greens, spinach, rice, or grains.”
