Summer macro bowl

No A/C?  No problem!  The only part of this that requires the stove top is the brown rice.  Cook a double batch on the weekend and you won’t need to cook for another couple of days.

Makes 3 serves.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • shelled edamame beans
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 avocado (1/4-1/3 per serve)
  • other raw veggies as desired / sitting around
  • sunflower seeds
  • honey soy sauce (see instructions below)

Instructions:

Put the brown rice on to cook (good instructions here).  While the rice is cooking, prepare the toppings and make the dressing.

Honey soy sauce:

  • 3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

Combine ingredients in a jar.  Screw lid on tight and shake to combine.

When rice is done, spoon into bowls and add toppings.  Drizzle on dressing to taste.
