Where to start? Choose your base–we’ve got chapters based on grains, noodles, greens, and broths–and then peruse options as diverse as Seared Tuna Poke Bowl, Green Fried Rice Bowl, Indian-Spiced Chicken Zoodle Bowl, and Vietnamese Beef Pho. Components within recipes are frequently interchangeable, so if you’ve got pre-cooked grains on hand, or a rotisserie chicken, you can easily swap these foods in. (Lunch tip: Most bowl components can also be made the day before and transported.)
Feel like improvising? Turn to our Bowl Basics section which offers 100 components, from Quinoa Pilaf to Quick Pickled Carrot Ribbons. Our vibrant Beet Tzatziki sauce or crunchy Savory Seed Brittle might be just the ticket to transform your bowl improvisation into something special, and everything can be made in advance and stored.
