So I clearly complain all the time about how I don’t have time to feed myself when I’m cooking for everyone else. I often gripe about not eating at all some days when I’m so busy. But when I’m too hungry to complain anymore, I let Whole Heart Provisions feed me.
Easily, one of my favorite vegan spots in Boston, Whole Heart serves up the MOST amazing veggie bowls, falafel dogs and on tap kombucha. Yes, you hear me correctly. KOMBUCHA ON TAP.
I am 100% addicted to their Miso bowl. It’s one of those things where I KNOW they have so many other amazing options, but I get it every damn time. The dressing is what really does it in. And even though it’s crazy delicious, it’s absolutely super simple to make. So even though I will still make weekly trips to WH, I wanted to try and recreate this bowl for myself. And I think I came pretty damn close. I nailed the dressing! Something about the bowl is still not quite the same as WH, but I’m still pretty stoked to have a fairly good knock-off version for half the price…and I get to avoid the hassle of trying to find parking in Allston!
Feel free to change up the portions or sub in whatever you want-these are rough estimates, but made about three bowls, give or take!
