Whenever I go out to eat I almost always order the same time each time I go there. The restaurant becomes the item off the menu. Sage in Echo Park has become the Soul Bowl.
I love this bowl. Every time I eat there I love it more and more. I love it so much, I decided I needed to attempt to make it. Before I tell you how I did it...I just want to say this was really good. Sean and I both loved it. . . But it was not as good as theirs. In fact eating my version, just made me want theirs more.
I baked a yam.
Cooked up some quinoa
I heated some black beans.
I cooked some Gardein buffalo wings. I made these in place of the delicious macaroni and cheese ball that comes slathered with a spicy sauce.
I browned a few slices of polenta (I bought it from TJ's).
I put a little bit of everything in the bowls. I smeared a little bit of Follow Your Heart horseradish sauce on the polenta- just like they do at Sage. This was so tasty. Sage came up with the perfect flavors and textures for this amazing bowl.
If you haven't been to Sage before, you seriously need to go.
