Hi friends! I’ve been alluding to this bowl that I’ve been making every week for quite some time now, and today I’m finally sharing my obsession :). Dig Inn is a healthy fast food chain, kind of like a chipotle, but with a more traditional menu of handcrafted grain bowls. There is one across the street from my apartment, so I tried it for the first time when we moved, and I was instantly obsessed! Jon and I started getting it pretty frequently, so we knew we had to find a way to recreate this bowl ASAP because it costs about $13 a bowl! Dig Inn is mainly in New York, but they have a few locations in Boston. I’d highly recommend getting it for lunch if you’re visiting and need something filling. But now you can create your own bowl so you can be eating Dig Inn anywhere. These two pictures are from my actual Dig Inn bowl.
My go to bowl is a rice blend, chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, and a kale cashew Ceasar salad. I haven’t quite figured out the kale part of the recipe, it’s still a work in progress, but this recipe is still great! I love how healthy and filling it is. I usually make it all on Sunday so that I can bring it to work all week for lunch. It stores really well and is so simple to prep the night before! This is my bowl and meal preps.
- Chicken – already cooked (we do ours in the slowcooker)
- Sweet Potatoes
- Brown Rice
- Olive Oil
- Preheat oven to 450*
- Wash the sweet potatoes
- Slice sweet potatoes in quarters (or eighths if large – you don’t want them too big because they need to be soft inside)
- Coat sweet potatoes with a little bit of olive oil and place evenly on a baking sheet (I put them in a bowl, drizzle a little olive oil, sprinkle a little salt and cinnamon, and then shake the bowl to evenly distribute)
- Put sweet potatoes in the oven for 25 minutes, flipping about halfway through. Depending on how large the potatoes are, it may take less or more time so be careful
- Cook rice and faro according to the instructions. We use a rice cooker and then I make the faro on the stove. I try to use a 2 to 1 ratio of rice to farro
- Mix the rice and farro together so they’re evenly dispersed
- Assemble your bowl
