Jade Edamame Brussels Sprout Rice Bowl

Sharon Palmer

The cool jade colors of whole plant foods kick this healthy, nutrient-packed Jade Edamame Brussels Sprout Rice Bowl into high gear! It all starts with jade rice, which is a variety of sushi-style rice infused with bamboo. That’s what gives the rice a gorgeous jade green color, and earthy, grassy flavor. One bite of this bowl, which is packed with roasted edamame, brussels sprouts, avocado, kale, cilantro, and green onions, is like stepping into a sweet, lush, fragrant bamboo forest! The vegetables are marinated in a simple ginger-soy dressing. And the whole bowl is topped with a delicious spicy peanut dressing! I’m telling you, this Jade Edamame Brussels Sprout Rice Bowl is the bomb! I created it for my family, and we all loved it. It doesn’t hurt that it’s just so, so pretty, and it’s also over the top flavorful, compliments of the roasted veggie blend, jade rice, and spicy peanut sauce. Plus, the recipe is completely gluten-free and vegan—and is a balanced, meal-in-a-bowl. Perfect for meal prep too.
