Healthy Peanutty Brown Rice Bowl

Sometimes we just want something nourishing and comforting – a big, layered bowl of varying textures and tastes, tied together with some sort of sauce.

From the bottom up, this was a layer each of:

  • Baby spinach
  • Brown rice
  • Steamed broccoli
  • Crispy panfried tofu

Topped with my creamy spicy peanutty sauce.  So good!

I’m going to write down proper measurements sometime for this so I have something to give you that’s more concise and easy to follow, but if you’re the type to whip up stuff to taste in the kitchen, the sauce is:

  • Peanut butter (about 1/4 cup)
  • Soy sauce (about 4 tbsp)
  • Sesame oil (about 2 tsp)
  • Rice vinegar (about 2 tbsp)
  • Lime juice (a squirt to taste)
  • Sriracha hot sauce (to taste – we like it hot, so several squirts!)
  • Water to thin out to a nice drizzleable texture 

Appetite for Reduction has some great ideas for multi-layered bowls.  Yum.  Makes a great weeknight meal!
