The Best Plant-Based Meal You’ll Make All Summer

BBQ Ranch Chicken Bowls. When I make a recipe 2x in one week, I know it’s worth sharing. This is a plant-based meal that is so filling and satisfying. It serves two, so I either make this for my husband and myself or I use the extra serving for the following day’s lunch.

    I made this tonight but made it with salmon instead of chicken and served it over a small portion of wild rice. It was SO good! I seriously can’t wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow!!
