One-bowl meals, an enduring culinary trend known for its simplicity, comfort, and nourishment, takes center stage in this appealing collection, which serves as both a primer for newbies and a resource for those who already enjoy this way of eating. It opens with a helpful guide to ratios and suggestions for proteins, veggies and fruits, greens, complex carbs, healthy fats, and toppings to mix and match. Breakfast bowls include a berry and spinach smoothie with seasonal fruits, spinach pecan granola, mixed seeds, and bee pollen, as well as a poached egg with miso onion oat groats, spinach, sesame seeds, and mixed cress leaves, both of which are satisfying enough to have any time of day. A section on light bowls features salmon tartare with cucumber, spinach, farro, wasabi mayonnaise, and fresh herbs, while heartier options include griddled halloumi with roast Jerusalem artichokes, burst tomatoes, asparagus, and jasmine rice with honey lemon dressing. Recipes are intended to serve one and include easy-to-make-ahead components for fast and stress-free assembly. For those looking for healthy meal ideas, this is a valuable resource. (Aug.)
