Grilled Macrobiotic Bowl

Grilled Macrobiotic Bowl.  We love fresh produce and everything green here.  There are many restaurants in LA that specialize in raw, vegan and vegetarian organic food.  I frequent those restaurants whenever I can, and it is always an (expensive) dream meal.  One of my favorite dishes is a macrobiotic bowl which features grains, fermented food, and sea vegetables. Today, I created a homemade version of the macrobiotic bowl so that I can enjoy it whenever I have the craving.  Now, you can enjoy one too.

What is macrobiotic, and why do I want to eat that way?  Generally speaking a macrobiotic diet involves eating primarily a plant based diet and combination of nutrients to obtain a yin-yang energy balance in the body.  I love these bowls, and definitely feel better after I eat one.  This bowl adds to the deliciousness of a macrobiotic bowl by grilling the ingredients and then topping with Garlic Cashew Creme.  This dish is vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
