Bowls of Plenty

Bowls have been a big deal for a while now, part of the trend toward healthy, crunchy, avocado toast-eating that culminated in a recent New York Times Food story that declared, “The Hippies Have Won.”

But other than jazzing up a bowl of oatmeal with banana slices, slivered almonds and honey, I’ve never been tempted to go back to the era of “The Moosewood Cookbook” for inspiration.

That is until is until I took a look at “Bowls of Plenty” (Grand Central Life & Style, $28), the new cookbook by James Beard award-winning food writer Carolynn Carreno. Click here for the rest of the story

Here are 4 other cookbooks to checkout if you want more grain bowl inspirations:
