Dimes is a little slice of happy, healthy, heaven in Chinatown founded by friends Sabrina de Sousa and Alissa Wagner in September of 2013. Dimes specializes in seasonal organic food that’s good for your mind and bod, as well as a housemade line of 100% organic apothecary products including lip balm, rosewater spray, and salt scrub. Stay tuned to fwx.com each Monday for a new tasty and filling bowl recipe.
A grain bowl might in fact be the perfect meal—and never more apropos than after the holidays, when our bodies are begging for healthy sustenance and our recent bad behaviors make us listen. A staple of our menu at Dimes, the best grain bowls are beautifully well-balanced and nourishing, containing a mix of grains, veggies, greens, protein and a delicious sauce to bring it all together. Each bite contains a harmony of acid, salt and sweet. I’m so excited to bring a new bowl to the table each week. This week's bowl is packed with vitamins A and C, potassium and iron from the veggies, cholesterol-reducing lentils and the natural anti-inflammatory properties found in turmeric. While the following recipe is vegetarian, feel free to add some roasted chicken, fish or a sunny-side up egg for a little added protein and heft. The best thing about bowls is the endless variety of ingredients to play with. Have fun!
