Veggie bowls are all the rage right now and it’s for a good reason. They provide a big nutritional boost, contain a variety of flavors and textures, can be personalized to fit your own preferences, and are just downright delicious when they’re done right! Also, they’re great for portion control, which helps to reduce food waste and prevents habitual overeating.
Some things were just made to go with Tommy’s vegetables, and chances are, you already have many of the ingredients for these 5-star pairings. If not, they’re readily available in grocery stores the next time you go shopping. Like our products, these veggie pairings are simple, delicious, and easy to cook.
Must-Try Tommy’s Veggie Pairings
We wouldn’t ask you to try anything we didn’t try ourselves! Check out our pairing recommendations and photos from Tommy’s kitchen:
Root Fusion + Brown Rice + Pistachios + Goat Cheese
For this bowl, place a cooked serving of Tommy’s Root Fusion (featuring carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, and Fuji apples) alongside an equal sized portion of cooked brown rice. Top with pistachio nuts and crumbled goat cheese. You’ll love this for a fast and easy dinner or a grab-and-go lunch.
Not feeling the rice? This makes a great salad, too! Just roast and then chill Tommy’s Root Fusion, and substitute your favorite greens in place of the brown rice. We recommend balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil for a light, tasty dressing!
Veggie Medley + Tofu + Pickled Ginger + Scallion
Tommy’s Vegetable Medley provides a perfect complement to this “Meatless Monday” dish! Simply cook this delectable, lightly seasoned mixture of broccoli, carrots, and green peas on your stove top for 8-10 minutes in an uncovered pan on medium-high heat. Add in some crispy tofu (seared in light olive oil), and top with chopped scallions and pickled ginger.
Looking to expand this for a super hungry crowd? Add rice or rice noodles, and you’ll have a filling dish with plenty of plant-based protein. If you have a dietary sensitivity to tofu or soybeans, try seitan strips instead!
Fiesta Quinoa + Veggie Burger + Cotija + Jalapeno/Cilantro
Have a craving for a burger but want to skip the extra fat and calories? Give this satisfying bowl a try! Combine a cooked serving of Tommy’s Fiesta Quinoa, featuring white and red quinoa, brown rice, mango, pinto beans, tomatoes, and Poblano peppers with your favorite vegetarian or vegan burger. Top with Cotija cheese (a Mexican cheese that resembles feta), fresh cilantro and avocado slices.
If you want a little extra heat, add a few slices of Jalapeno peppers. There are many kinds of veggie burgers available in the freezer section of your grocery store, and this easy bowl recipe offers a tasty, easy way to find your favorites!
Brussels Sprouts + Steamed Red Potato + Blackened Shrimp + Parsley
This veggie bowl makes for a delicious way to warm up on a chilly night and easily re-heats the next day for lunch. Simply oven roast Tommy’s lightly seasoned Brussels Sprouts, and combine with steamed red potatoes and shrimp lightly sauteed with olive oil and cajun seasoning. Top with chopped parsley and a little squeeze of lemon. Whether you’re serving this as a romantic dinner for two or as a family-style “make your own bowl” for dinner, you’ll love the taste!
