Say hello to my new favorite lunch, this Grape Feta Greens & Grains Bowl!
GRAPE FETA GREENS & GRAINS BOWL
3-5 cups greens of choice (arugula, spring mix, spinach, etc.)
1/2 cup cooked grains (farro, quinoa, barley… whatever floats your boat)
1/2 cup red grapes, sliced in half
2 tablespoons roasted cashews
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
Optional protein: I added pre-seasoned tofu, but you can add whatever your heart desires
2 teaspoons olive oil
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
1. Place the greens, grains, sliced red grapes, roasted cashews and crumbled feta cheese and optional protein in a salad bowl and mix to combine.
2. Add the two teaspoons olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice and enjoy!
Notes on Prep:
Since you have to buy all the ingredients, let’s assume that you’re going to be eating this recipe all week. Here’s what I recommend for prep work to make your life easier during the week.
1. Prep the grains ahead. Cook one cup of dry grains (yields about 3 cups cooked grains depending on the type) to have in for the week.
2. Prep your protein ahead. I usually buy pre-seasoned tofu for this recipe that I can cut it up and throw on top. However, if you want to add chicken I would recommend cooking the meat in advance and throwing it in a tupperware container to add to salads throughout the week.
