Beautiful bowls both sweet and savoury!
One of the hottest trends right now is serving attractively-arranged meals in a bowl. Sometimes they’re a little sweet, making them perfect for breakfast, while savoury versions are popular for lunch or dinner. Many bowl-style meals also tend to be quite healthy, packed with grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, protein and sometimes topped with a dazzling sauce as well. This episode of Paula Roy’s Favourite Foods on Rogers TV Ottawa shows you how to make three delicious bowls that are sure to become family favourites.

To me, a piping hot bowl of oatmeal is as comforting as it is satisfying – no need for a mid-morning snack on oatmeal days, especially when you load it up with protein and fruit.
This recipe is inspired by the classic-style egg rolls my mom and I used to make when I was very young. A great thing about this dish (aside from the spectacular flavour) is that you can cook the pork and seasonings up to 48 hours ahead and refrigerate, then reheat in a pan and add the vegetables and sauce for a meal that’s ready in just 5 minutes.
Poke hails from Hawaii and burst onto the Canadian food scene a few years ago. My poke bowl is a delicious dish that’s as healthy as it is beautiful, packed with vibrantly-coloured raw vegetables and marinated raw tuna. For an extra speedy meal, cook the rice, prepare the vegetables and marinate the tuna ahead of time and refrigerate, then quickly assemble in just five minutes when you’re ready to eat.
