A Bowl Meal


This is a piece I wrote awhile back for one of my favorite sites for mothers called The Ma Books. I figured I should share it here. Not sure why it has taken me so long to do so, 
but better late than never, right? Enjoy.  

Before I had Hazel, our dinners were often times pretty elaborate. I was always trying complicated recipes from my big collection of cookbooks, using lots of new and exciting ingredients. The dishes piled up without any worries. Vegetables were cut with precision, cooked to perfection, and everything was timed just right. Meals were savored with slow, uninterrupted conversation until whenever. There were no babies to be nursed, bathed, and rocked to sleep. It was quiet.

Life has changed dramatically from those days of quiet dinners. Now, it's all about simplicity. But health is never compromised. In an effort to make life easier, I make large batches of whole grains and roasted vegetables in the beginning of the week and use them in these "bowl meals" throughout the week. Each time I make a meal with the grain and vegetable, I try to add something different and fresh. A handful of beans, some toasted nuts, a leafy green, a sprinkling of fresh herbs, a hefty spoonful of kimchi. Anything, really. It keeps everything from becoming boring and it makes me feel less like I'm eating a bowl of leftovers.

In this particular case, I had made a large batch of millet and roasted cauliflower and carrots in the beginning of the week. A scoop of millet and vegetables combined with some marinated tempeh, massaged raw kale, and some fresh herbs turned into a simple and healthful meal in practically no time. Hazel even enjoyed it.
