One of my favorite restaurants in Asheville is The Laughing Seed Cafe. It’s a cute vegetarian restaurant with all kinds of tempting dishes. But whenever I go, I always get the Harmony Bowl – a combo of brown rice, beans and veggies with a yummy sauce.
Today I had two goals in mind for lunch:
1) Make something as fast as possible because I was starving
2) Use up leftovers
So I came up with my version of the harmony bowl:
Part A: Sauteed cabbage, carrot and zucchini in apple cider vinegar with a bit of brown sugar
Part B: Leftover quinoa chickpea confetti casserole
Part C: A cup of mashed sweet potato that I steamed and saved from the split pea soup night.
Part D: A modified version of ED&BV’s Balsamic-Maple Sauce made with equal parts plus a bit of Smart Balance, S+ P
It was fantastic and filling!!! And very quick and easy thanks to using mostly leftovers. I just had to clean the cabbage skillet 🙂
On the side I had a few Kashi crackers for a palate-cleaning crunch (about 2/3 a serving)
With ED&BV reading material and seltzer –
Lunch was about 575 kcal, 19 grams fiber and 15 grams protein. Hopefully it’ll carry me through the afternoon of chores and to-dos!
