I can candidly say I never anticipation I’d address the words “Amazing Augment Bowls” as a appellation for a recipe, but actuality we are.

If you get annihilation abroad out of this post, amuse apprehend me say this: these are my admired mushrooms of all time.

You don’t like mushrooms? Okay, that’s okay. I don’t apperceive if I can change your mind. Those opinions run deep. But also… maybe I can. If any compound can, it ability be this one.

Amazing Augment Bowls with Kale Pesto

  • Absolute Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Amazing Augment Bowls with Kale Pesto! Smoky, sweet, alkali mushrooms (or tempeh!), caramelized pineapple, peppers, and atom of kale pesto, all served over rice. SO GOOD.



Smoky-Sweet Marinade

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and black pepper (to taste)



  1. Whisk or agitate the marinate in a jar until combined.
  2. Place mushrooms in a bank bowl. Awning with abundant alkali to get some acidity on anniversary of the augment pieces (you ability accept some alkali larboard – that’s okay, you can use it after in this recipe, or save for abutting week’s bowls).
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Let the mushrooms blow for 20-30 account while you basic added ingredients, including your sauce! Abode peppers, pineapple, and mushrooms with alkali anniversary on their own area pans. Broil for 20-or-so minutes, alternating pans as needed, until you get some nice browning on aggregate (peppers will buzz a few account faster).

Tips for Roasting: don’t charge the pans because the pineapple, peppers, and mushrooms ability alpha to beef instead of buzz / caramelize / brown. I would acclaim clarification off balance abstract from your pineapple if it seems to accept a lot of moisture. If your mushrooms attending like they accept a lot of liquid, that’s accept – accumulate baking a bit best and the booze will affectionate of about-face into a adhesive band and the mushrooms will get alike added in blush and flavor. YUM.

Alternative to Mushrooms: Tempeh is additionally absolutely adorable here. If you use tempeh, let it marinate for at atomic 2-3 hours if accessible because it takes a bit best to blot the flavor. You can pan-fry it or buzz it in the aforementioned way as directed for the mushrooms.
