Macrobiotic rainbow bowl + a tahini-soy dressing

macrobiotic bowl vegan

This bowl is seriously amazing.  Its fast, nutritious, vegan, gluten-free, and can be raw.  Best of all, you can use whatever veggies you have in your fridge to make it.  If you want it totally raw, omit the rice.  It’s all good- the more, the merrier.  What unifies it all together is an amazing tahini-soy dressing with LOADS of umami flavor.  I had leftover sauce and ended up dipping raw veggies in it the next day.  YUM.  Both my kids were loving it too.  Enough said.  The sauce recipe comes from a website that I love for raw vegan inspiration: rawfoodrecipes.com

In the bowl:

Julienned carrots

Pea shoots

Red cabbage

Microgreens

Wakame seaweed

Brown rice

Avocado

Other things that would be amazing: kale/spinach, legumes, kelp noodles, zucchini noodles, sweet potato, kimchi, sauerkraut, cucumber, asparagus…really anything.

“Knock-off Dragon Sauce”

  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup tamari
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 clove garlic

Blend all ingredients until smooth and drizzle over your bowl!

Arent these turnips and carrots just gorgeous? (this photo is completely unedited by the way!  Nature in all her glory.)

I packed them for a snack at work and dipped them in the leftover sauce.  My co workers think I’m quite weird with all my “different” veggies and fruits.  Many of them had never heard of a turnip.  I think they’re weird for eating the same crap all the time.
