We all knew it had to happen, right?
Ever since I first tried this lovely creation a couple of weeks ago, I knew I had to endeavor making one at home. It’s really everything you could wish for: satisfying brown rice (you can also add black beans here), crisp chopped veggies, spicy Bitchin’ Sauce (that’s really the name), creamy avocado and a drippy egg on top.
The key ingredient here of course is the Bitchin’ Sauce. They sell this at local farmer’s markets and is almost like a hummus, yet made with almonds instead of garbanzo beans. They have a huge variety of flavors, and the guys that work at the booth are hilarious… and kind of intense. They yell “WHAT’S UP?!” at you and enthusiastically tell everyone to “have a Bitchin’ day.” It’s perfect in so many ways. Even though I’m happy to support this awesome company with my newfound bowl addiction, I know they’re not widely available or cheap to ship, so I figured I’d share my at-home version for those of you who’d like to try it out.
-Brown rice and black beans
-1/2 avocado, chopped
-green onion, cilantro, jalapeño, tomato, shredded cabbage
Recipe is here! I made it according to these directions. The changes I made: soaked the almonds, used olive oil (half the suggested amount), and added 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard. For a chipotle variation, I later added one chipotle chile in adobo sauce. As you can see, I’ve been enjoying these fairly often.

Thanks San Diego for my food bowl obsession. First the acai bowls, then the breakfast bowl, and now these.
Favorite food combo in a bowl: go.
