To me, Whole Foods is a little slice of heaven on earth.
Some women like to window shop and drool over beautiful clothes…
I prefer to peruse the isles of Whole Foods.
(Ok, I love clothes too but window-shopping is not really my thing… I like shopping to buy better)
Anyway… I love to stroll down the isles and dream of new meals to create and flavors to try.
Beyond just shopping there, they have some of the best lunch and dinner meals around. If you have not gone to their Marketplace for a meal, you really need to!
They have EVERYTHING. Mexican, Italian, Indian, Sushi… you name it, they have it and everything is delicious! I know that most of the store is pretty spendy (my husband calls it “Whole Paycheck”) but their meals are really quite reasonably priced.
One of my favorite things to eat there lately is their Teriyaki Salmon Bowls. I pretty much want one all day, everyday so it was time to attempt to make them at home.
Now if I can just convince my husband that he wants these everyday too…
GLUTEN FREE TERIYAKI SAUCE
1/4 C Bragg’s amino acids
3/4 C water
1 tsp minced ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
2 T brown sugar
1 T cornstarch
Couple of dashes of cayenne pepper
Heat in a saucepan over medium heat until it boils. Then reduce to a simmer until it thickens. Stir frequently.
GRILLED SALMON AND VEGGIE BOWLS
Adjust quantities according to how many you are serving
*any veggies work!
Thinly sliced salmon
Cooked brown rice
Fire up the grill!
Place all chopped veggies in a large bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a scoop of minced garlic.
Cook them on the grill on a high heat until they brown up but still a bit crispy. We cook ours on a grill pan we got at Target and it works perfectly for any veggies
For the salmon, we usually buy the frozen Alaskan Salmon Fillets from Costco and those are really easy to slice in thin pieces. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil, lemon juice and dash of sea salt. Place them on the grill and watch them closely because they won’t take long to cook.
Layer brown rice, veggies, and salmon and drizzle the teriyaki sauce on top. Garnish with fresh basil and green onions for added flavor.
