Vegetable Bowls:
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large bushel broccolini chopped, or 1 large crown broccoli
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 bunch green onion chopped
  • 4 cups baby spinach or kale
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt to taste
Creamy Wasabi Sauce:
For Serving:
  • 1 ripe avocado peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 small cucumber sliced
  • Microgreens for serving optional
Prepare the Wasabi Sauce:
  1. Blend the ingredients for the Wasabi Sauce in a small blender or whisk vigorously in a bowl until combined. NOTE: If your sauce is super thick and pasty, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water to thin it out

Prepare the Vegetable Bowls:
  1. Cook rice according to package instructions.
  2. While rice is cooking, saute the vegetables. Add the olive oil to a medium-sized non-stick skillet, along with the chopped broccolini. Cook covered over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until broccolini has softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and green onion, and continue cooking until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the baby spinach, cover the skillet, and cook until spinach has wilted, about two minutes. Add sea salt to taste.
  3. Add the cooked rice and wasabi sauce to the skillet with the vegetables. Stir everything well and add sea salt and/or liquid aminos and wasabi to taste.
  4. Divide rice and veggies between 2 or 3 bowls. Top with sliced cucumber, avocado, and microgreens.
