The 80-degree heat is saying that it’s not quite fall yet, but that's not stopping us from enjoying cold weather comfort foods, like this hearty, warm noodle dish that's super filling yet diet-friendly. After all, comfort food doesn’t always have to be unhealthy, and this wholesome “supper bowl” with egg, broccoli, peas, rice noodles, and miso—a dream combo—proves just that.

This one-bowl dinner recipe comes from Supper Love ($16, amazon.com), a new cookbook from the “king of salads,” David Bez. In 2012, the former Italian art director and designer challenged himself to bring a different salad to work everyday and documented his creations on his blog SaladPride, which eventually turned into the bestselling book, Salad Love ($17; amazon.com). Now Bez is back with a new cookbook stocked with 130 “supper bowl” recipes. Every bowl is broth-based and consists of a healthy mix of veggies, protein, and toppings, with options ranging from light and fresh, to hearty and hot, like the miso bowl. Plus, if you’re vegan or vegetarian, Bez offers modifications to his recipes to adjust to any kind of diet.
