Fall Miso Bowl

Miso bowls are one of those meals that are easy to prep ahead of time and have on hand as a grab-n-go option for lunch or a quick midweek dinner.

This fall miso bowl incorporates ingredients that capture the colors of fall, orange and yellow, green and red hues, as well as browns. And there’s no set quantity or combination, so you can choose what you like and have on hand.

Some veggies to consider include: peas, zucchini, celery, broccolini, bok choy, spinach, kale, chard, bell peppers, red cabbage, red onion, radish, carrots, yellow squash, scallions, mushrooms, chilis.

For the broth you can use premade broth, miso paste or bouillon. When I make this ahead as a meal jar, I add a spoonful of miso or bouillon and store it and then add boiling water when I’m ready to eat it. That makes it easy to take to work.

I also like to add both a veggie noodle like zucchini spirals and a rice ramen noodle. Lots of noodles make this a fun meal that anyone will enjoy.
