Hi friends,

This meal has been on my weekly meal rotations for a few months now and I’m absolutely obsessed with it! The recipe I’m sharing is with Chicken but I love making these bowls with any protein really! Some of my favourites: Salmon, Shrimp, Tofu, Tempeh etc. I love meals that can be adjusted based on individual needs.

Look at those fresh ingredients! I think this would make a really fun “bowl night” where everyone can assemble their own bowl and make it look super fancy but really it’s just filled with healthy, nourishing food.

I personally love rice vermicelli. It’s super light and airy but I have tried this same meal with soba before and was definitely a fan. So I know the recipe list of ingredients is LONG like probably one of my longest but I really wanted to share how exactly I make this meal. I swear it’s easier to make than it looks :).
