Homemade Yumm Bowls

If you live in Oregon, you've likely discovered Cafe Yumm. Therefore, discovering Yumm Sauce. This, my friends, is a little jar of magic. Put it on anything, ANYTHING, and taste the rainbow of flavors.

I literally have friends who have this stuff shipped across the country to eat. And it's worth every penny.

On a rainy day, I bet you most Oregonians contemplate having or making a Yumm bowl. While the restaurants serve delicious bowls, I prefer to make my own with all of my favorite ingredients. The concept is simple. Start with a bed of cooked rice and some type of beans, add your favorite fresh veggies and condiments, top with Yumm Sauce and presto - homemade yumm bowl!!  Listed below are the steps for one of my staple meals. Enjoy!

Homemade Yumm Bowls
  • 3 cups cooked white rice (basmati, jasmin)
  • 1 jar Cafe Yumm sauce
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed 
  • 1 small can sliced black olives, rinsed 
  • 1/3 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced 
  • 1 container fresh or store-bought salsa 
  • 1 container sour cream 
  • 1-2 large mushrooms, sliced 
  • 1/4 head red cabbage, diced 
  • Shredded cheese of your choice
  • *nice additions: shredded carrot, cucumber, tortilla chips, field greens, brown rice, quinoa 
Start with your rice and beans, adding equal amounts to the bottom of the bowl. Next add the other various items you've selected (veggies, etc.). Finish with your Yumm Sauce, salsa, cheese, etc. VoilĂ - delicious Yumm bowl!
