Can’t believe it’s taken me all of January to share something “healthy” with you guys but I know many of you are trying to make better decisions when it comes to meal time so today I present to you these Salad & Grain Bowls with Spicy Cashew Dressing! The great thing about these bowls is that you can switch up the greens you use, the grains you use and play around with the roasted and raw veggies to find a balance of flavors you truly enjoy. It also means you won’t get bored of constantly eating the same thing! I love ideas for quick meals that are plant based and nutrient dense.
These bowls have essentially four parts 4 to them :
- Grains = I used farro but you can subsitute this with quinoa, lentils, wheat berry, brown rice etc.
- Greens = I used a combo of bowl & basket (from Shoprite) Chopped Sesame Asian Salad Kit & Spring Mix
- Vegetables = I used roasted red peppers and sweet potatoes but you can use any combination of raw and or roasted vegetables!
- Dressing = I always prefer a homemade dressing thats high in good fats and full of flavor!
Bowl & Basket is a new line from Shoprite that revolve around making quality ingredients more accessible to consumers. They are affordable, versatile and have made it so much easier for me to get in a healthy lunch during my busiest days.
These bowls are great for those of you who need ideas for vegetarian recipes but need something that’s going to be satisfying and filling. The spicy cashew dressing is a great option for a healthy homemade dressing that’s still incredibly delicious ! I Hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as I do and cannot wait to see what variations you tag me in on @thechutneylife! As always, Happy Eating!
