Power Dragon Bowl

A Few Words…

Every now and then I feel the need to nourish my body with healthy, no frill steamed veggies. And with this dish, trust me, you will feel so nourished and healthy!

I won’t even pretend that my husband and sons like this, BUT Tamara and I love it!!! You can use any vegetables you like, have it as a side dish or add some protein like tofu, tempeh, salmon, chicken or quinoa and have it as a meal!

Drizzle some sauce on top – and you’re good to go! I love these sauces and make extra to use during the week on regular salads as well.
