What is it about food served in a bowl that makes it so appealing? Bowls definitely make it easier to scoop up all the tasty ingredients (and coming from someone who leaves most meals with at least one embarrassing shirt stain, the bowl is my friend). Plus, there's something about a bowl that makes you feel as cozy as being tucked into bed at night.

Bottom line, we know you can't go wrong with bowl food so we reached out to Lindsay Cotter of Cotter Crunch, who is certainly no stranger to the bowl fad. She puts her own unique twist on the trend and shows us how to break out the bowl by adding the healthiest superfoods. These seven bowl recipes are high in fiber and protein and gluten-free, so you can find us eating out of a bowl all week long. If you want more recipes like these, check out Lindsay's new cookbook, Nourishing Superfood Bowls.

cumin chicken bowl

One pan, one happy cook. Just make the marinade; then it’s as easy as combining the chicken, chickpeas, shallots, and spices in a baking dish. This is not only the easiest 30-minute meal ever, it will also be one of your favorites.

mongolian beef bowl

This dish is 100-percent Paleo and the easiest way to put beef back on the menu if you've been missing it. The Mongolian sauce, made with garlic, ginger, coconut sugar, and soy sauce, makes for a more exciting meal than just salt and pepper. For the rice base, simply chop your cooked broccoli heads in a food processor and you’ll be good to go.

fig salad

If your salads are looking a little sad these days, you’ve come to the right place. The sour spiralized apples combined with the sweet raw figs feels like summer just landed in your mouth. Plus the green goddess dressing is the perfect duo of sweet and salty, made with coconut milk, tahini, soy sauce, and spices.

stuffed pepper bowl

Call all your friends because we’re going family-style with this recipe. You know we’re huge fans of colorful veggies, and this recipe has no shortage of your radiant reds and forest greens. It's made with lean beef, quinoa, spinach, and tomatoes, and you get those melt-in-your-mouth stuffed peppers without the hassle of actually stuffing them.

dirty chai bowl

We love Chai lattes, but come summer, all we want is something cool and refreshing. With this recipe, we’ve transformed your steaming morning beverage into an icy blended treat that will have you praising your spice rack (cinnamon and ginger, specifically).

risotto bowl

You can’t get much better than homemade risotto, but who has time to sit there stirring and simmering? This 20-minute risotto cuts your cooking time in half. Just drizzle your creamy sauce made of avocado, coconut milk, ginger, and chili sauce on your sautéed cauliflower rice and you’ll have a sophisticated Italian dinner for four in no time.

nacho salad bowl

This mix-and-match salad bowl is everything you love about nachos and so much more. Using roasted turkey, sweet potato, cauliflower, raw veggies, and jalapeños for a kick of heat, get ready to dip in with a chip to eat your salad in a new way… no forks necessary.
