One Bowl Meals

by HEAB on January 11, 2011

CD recently observed that we always eat one bowl meals. I guess I’d never really noticed before, but it’s true. We rarely prepare a main course with a bunch of side items. Nope, everything gets tossed into one big bowl here at the HEAB household.

For instance, I’m been loving on these turkey burger bowls lately…


This meal is so easy, quite tasty, and really filling. To make, first microwave a frozen turkey burger (we buy ours at Costco) for 30 seconds on each side. Place in a skillet, chop up with a wooden spoon, and then saute over medium high heat. While browning the turkey burger, wash and pierce the skin of a small white potato. Wrap in paper towel and microwave 3 to 4 minutes (cook long enough so that you can cut through it easily with a knife). Chop the potato and throw in the skillet along with your turkey burger and a TBSP of coconut oil (or butter). Saute the mix until potato gets crispy. I usually throw some spinach in at the very end and then top the mix with brewers yeast after cooking.

You know what makes the above dish even better?


Use a sweet potato instead of a white potato.

Last night’s dinner was another yummy one-bowler…


Please forgive the brightness. Still playing around with my light box.

Chris and I both loved this meal. I made Mama Pea’s Pizza Quinoa Casserole. Mama Pea – it was delicious! We topped our pizza with meatballs.

Meatball Ingredients:

1 lb. grass fed finished beef

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1/2 TBSP onion powder

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 to 1 tsp salt


Pre-heat oven to 350℉. Combine all ingredients and roll into bite-sized meatballs. Bake for 55 minutes.

Are you a fan of one-bowl meals?
