Meals in a bowl. One of my absolute favorites things! Not only are they quick and easy if you prep all the parts the night before, but this is one of the best ways to avoid the picky eater, no I hate it, refuse to even look at my food tantrum that often ensues in a household that is blessed enough to include that family member. Giving a little one the freedom and responsibility to build their own dinner, often encourages them to eat their meal because they own it. Now, I’m not guaranteeing anything here since we still have those “moods,” but I can say that the odds are significantly higher! Jackie from Vegan Yack Attack is pretty much my hero because her new book “Vegan Bowl Attack” is full of amazing meals that my 4 year old will not throw at me, including this vegan fish taco bowl. I owe you a drink Jackie!
First off, Jackie is an incredible human. I am blessed enough to know her through the blogging world, and every time we hang out not only do I laugh constantly but I am blown away by her amazing food. I still dream about the chili she made at one of our get togethers. So when her book was ready to make it’s debut into the food world, I jumped at the chance to review it. IT. IS. AMAZING. And the photography kinda makes me want to eat the pages!
This recipe, her vegan fish taco bowl, was so so tasty and I love the whole food approach that she takes in making the “fish.” I was blown away by the texture and flavor of the hearts of palm that was the base of it! Side note, I tried both a jarred hearts of palm and a canned variety, and by far the canned one was better. The texture is firmer, where the jarred is a little too soft and slimy for me. So keep that in mind.
I prepped all of the parts the night before we were having these vegan fish taco bowls for dinner, which made this one of the quickest meals we have ever had! Then, I allowed the kids to build their own (they all loved the “fish” and the little one kept calling it “tita” and screaming for more, he’s a weird one). I did make two salsas since I am huge on heat and I needed a mild version for the boys, all 4 of them 😉 The tortilla strips came out nice and crispy, so everyone loved using them as chips to scoop up the bowl ingredients. Huge hit! We will definitely make this again, along with every other recipe in the book. Check out the little hand that wouldn’t stop eating:
