TC in a B

Update: 8/16/2015
My sons have affectionately termed this dinner, "TC in a B" (Throw Crap in a Bowl). :::::::::grin::::::::
However, I DO have SOME method to my madness. I like to pair foods that match well, both in texture and flavor. This TC in a B is an Asian-inspired bowl. It included brown rice, roasted sweet potatoes, edamame, diced mango, roasted bell peppers, and steamed chard. I topped it with a spicy peanut sauce. SO good! We have also made Mexican-inspired TC in a B, and they are also fabulous (sub salsa for the sauce!)!

Spicy Peanut Sauce:
1/2 cup natural peanut butter or peanut butter powder (to reduce the fat content of the sauce)
1-2 T maple syrup or date syrup
1 T. low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
1/4 t. ginger powder or 1/2 t. crushed fresh ginger
1/8 t. garlic powder
1/4-1/2 cup water
Sriracha sauce, to taste

Mix all ingredients well, adding water slowly until you reach desired consistency. Drizzle over your bowl!

  1. love it! I do this all the time, like today. Had rice, carrots and broccoli. put veggies in food processor and mixed into the rice. added braggs aminos for flavor (I like things fairly plain). even the dogs wanted some, and they usually turn their noses up on my vegan options unless it is beans!!

    3. I buy mine at Vitacost.com: http://www.vitacost.com/vitacost-peanut-butter-slim-tm-powdered-non-gmo-gluten-free-6-5-oz-2
      But you can buy other brands generally in stores like Whole Foods or health foods stores.

  2. We eat a lot of bowls, too. Whatever's in the fridge and needs to get eaten up! It helps to have a good sauce to moisten it all up, and your peanut sauce

    1. Use the same amount as peanut butter. You may need to add more water (slowly) to get a sauce consistency

    3. Trixie...I would use the same amount of peanut butter powder as peanut butter, but slowly add water after you mix together the ingredients listed in the sauce.
