In our home, we love to build bean bowls served in a hand glazed pottery bowl. Start with picking a grain such as quinoa or rice and add a half-cup of cooked or canned beans of your choice, toss some leafy greens on, add sautéed onions, shredded carrot, avocado and mushrooms, then top with feta cheese and pumpkin seeds. Next add your choice of seasonings and dressing such as fresh lemon vinaigrette, balsamic vinegar, ginger miso or chipotle ranch, and dive in! Try out different toppings and combinations each time for new fun flavors. We never tire of these bowls!
