I have always loved fruit and vegetables more than anything else. You would think my mother lucked out with a kid that loved veggies but instead she fought with me to eat the meat on my plate. My dad is a true meat and potatoes kinda guy, if its green he will die from it. So needless to say, we had meat dishes more than I cared to eat. But now the choice is mine and I get to eat as I please. With that comes the flexibility to explore recipes and ingredients and a chance to come up with unique dishes that are as good as they look. This sesame coconut rice bowl is colorful, flavorful and a delicious gluten free dinner with an Asian meets Caribbean fusion flavor profile. I saw these these beautiful multi colored carrots, already peeled and Trader Joe’s ( I’m not affiliated with Trader Joe’s, I just shop there, a lot) and I had to have them. They also carry baby bok choy, which I love. This bowl is filling and satisfying even in the middle of winter in New York. Now lets start dinner.
