Just about everything is more fun (and easy) when eaten in bowl form! From deconstructed burritos and sushi rolls, to clean-out-the-fridge dinners, there's a reason bowls have become hugely popular. Here are 55 delicious, healthy and easy vegan bowl recipes that demonstrate why. Try one for dinner tonight!
A few years back, if you were to tell me you were having a bowl for dinner, I'd suggest that that might pose a serious choking risk, assuming you could even manage to bite off a chunk of this bowl you were supposedly planning to eat.
These days, the concept of a bowl has a whole new meaning. Not quite a salad, but not really not a salad either. A superpowered salad? No wonder so many are called power bowls! Throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl, dress, mix it up and dig in. What could be cozier, easier or healthier?
Bowls are kind of perfect for spring, because they've got the whole saladish thing going on, but are still super cozy and often served warm. Transitional food. So now's about the perfect time to share a collection of my favorite vegan bowl recipes.
Side note: vegan bowl recipes are really hard to categorize! They're so random! So I stuck with the three pretty broad categories or grain bowls, noodle bowls and veggie bowls (i.e. everything else). But in each category you'll find all kinds of crazy bowl ideas that defy definition. In other words, anything goes. Have fun!
Side note 2: As you may have guessed from the title, these are all vegan bowl recipes you'd make for dinner. If you're looking for a little bowl action earlier in the day, be sure to check out my roundup of 50 vegan breakfast bowls.
