Miso Glazed Veggie Bowl

Do you ever feel like you’re in a cooking rut? Always getting the same items from the grocery store, having the same thing for breakfast, and cooking the same things for dinner every week? I hear you. I have been feeling the same way recently. And I’m also here to tell you, it’s so easy to switch it up just by making some simple swaps! I transformed my typical “Asian veggie bowl” into something with unique flavors and textures just by swapping out a few items.

Swap #1: Grains

My go-to grain is brown rice, sometimes quinoa, but mainly brown rice. This time, I switched it up with farro! Farro is an ancient whole grain with a denser texture than rice and it melds great with other flavors!

Swap #2: Veggies

I typically by the same veggies from the store each week. So this time, instead of buying my usual sweet potatoes, I picked out several varieties: purple, orange, and white! Yes, there are white sweet potatoes and they are amazing!

Swap #3: Sauces & Glazes

When I find a sauce combo that works well, I tend to put it on everything. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I use my honey mustard vinaigarette A LOT. So this time, I used miso instead of mustard, along with a few other key ingredients, and it gave the dish a whole new flavor profile! The tahini sauce on top also gave it a delicious nutty flavor that I love.

There you have it! Some simple swaps for an everyday meal. Check out some of my favorite products to get some more ideas for your weekly routine!
