Kid Chef Peanut Veggie Rice Bowl

All in One Bowl meals are popular in high end restaurants and local food trucks. Kids can make a tasty One Bowl Meal at home with this hearty, comforting dish with organic veggies fresh from the garden. Kids can cook ½ cup organic whole grain brown rice, which retains the nutrient-rich bran and germ. Organic peanuts are a good source of Vitamins E and B, protein, and a plethora of antioxidants including resveratrol. Kid Chefs can make a tasty peanut sauce by heating 2 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil in a sauce pan, adding 1/3 cup finely chopped organic red onion, and sauté until the onion is soft.  Add 2 tbsp fresh peeled and grated organic ginger, 1 clove minced organic garlic, ¼ tsp cumin, 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper and continue to sauté 2 or 3 minutes.  Remove from stove and add 1 tbsp organic soy sauce, 3 tbsp water, 3 tbsp organic peanut butter, the juice of 1 lime, and ¼ tsp salt and whisk until smooth. Wash, chop, and steam 1 organic zucchini, 4 organic crimini mushrooms, 1 organic carrot, and 1 cup organic pak choi. Add the veggies and peanut sauce to the rice and mix thoroughly. This quick, yummy, nutrient rich dish is a kids’ favorite that the whole family will enjoy.
