Glory Bowls: What are they, why you should try them, and how to make your own!


Whenever I am visiting my friends in BC this is our GO TO dinner dish. We usually have a group of about 6 of us, and we are always looking for something easy, tasty, and nutritious. We also have a few allergies and food preferences among our group (vegetarian, gluten-free, egg-free, to name a few). So glory bowls make for an excellent solution!
