I used the "Monk Bowl" idea for lunch today. I cooked some brown rice in the rice cooker and steamed veggies on the stove. For the sauce, I made the Shiitake Mushroom Sauce from The New McDougall Cookbook. The only I did differently, was I used fresh Shiitakes, because I had a ton from last week's market! It made a lot of sauce, so now I have a ton leftover....which is good, because I also have a lot of leftover rice. And by the way, I used a flat leaf type of kale in the vegetables. It was grown on the property at the Saturday market!
For dinner, I basically made my Cauliflower a la Lemon recipe, but I added some potatoes, because I didn't have a ton of broccoli and thought they would go nicely with the lemon flavor. However, I left off the couscous for this meal, since we had potatoes in there. And I didn't add oil, just a little spray on the pan first.
Tomorrow's market day! I'm excited, are you?? (Is it wrong to look forward to Market Saturday every week?)
