I recently took a trip to portland and, as to be expected, ate the most incredible food. One night we went to one of the food truck parks and I chose the vegan bowl at Hawaiian Grill. It was pretty tasty! It was red beans, brown rice, kimichi (the kimchi was SO good and spicy!), pickled cucumbers, avocado, spinach and drizzled with peanut sauce. I figured I could try to make a version when I got back and I took a stab at it. I have been trying to figure out more ways to eat kimchi, and I can add this bowl to that list!
