Whip up one (or a few) of these deliciously easy edible bowl recipes for those busy weeknights.
Devised for quick cleanup, we’re upping the ante by using multipurpose bowls. Instead of throwing out the remnants of a pineapple, use it as a bowl to hold your grain-free fried rice. If you need something to hold your Sloppy Joe Stew, try adding a hearty acorn squash to the mix.
Edible bowls even extend into the realm of pizza with butternut squash boats you can stuff with your favorite toppings. For a quick pasta recipe, fill a spaghetti squash shell with your preferred sauce and Paleo noodles. You can even create a delicious tropical dessert with coconut crusted stuffed pineapple.
Not only do edible bowls save you a massive amount in clean-up time, but they also make an impressive presentation. They make great practice for waste not, want not – meaning, the more you use the product, the less you waste. So go ahead, use up every food remnant! The environment will thank you for it.
