Rainbow Grain Bowl

Not every vegetable needs a recipe. When you look into your refrigerator at all the beautiful colors; things don’t need to get complicated. Think about how you prefer to eat each vegetable that comes in your CSA box each week. Raw? Sauteed? Roasted? Steamed? Add in some grains if you prefer, such as: farro, quinoa, wheat berries, spelt, rice, bulgur, or pasta. And maybe a protein; I chose a soft cooked egg. I prepped my vegetables in the beginning of the week and then just had to assemble the rainbow to create a delicious meal. I topped it off with my vegan cashew chipotle sauce.

What’s in my bowl:


Soft cooked egg

Mixed greens

Sauteed Bok Choy

Shredded raw carrot

Blanched green beans

Sliced radish

Fresh tomatoes

Roasted sweet potatoes

Roasted squash

Pickled red beet


Pumpkin seeds

Topped with my Vegan Cashew Chipotle Sauce

1 cup of soaked raw cashews

½ cup water

1 chipotle pepper (from a can) along with 2 tsp of the sauce

1 lime, juiced

1 tsp agave (or any sweetener you prefer)

1 tsp liquid aminos (or ½ tsp salt)

½ tsp turmeric

1 Tbsp olive oil

Soak raw cashews in water for at least an hour, they will become very soft. Then drain and measure 1 cup for the recipe. Store any unused soaked cashews in water in the fridge.

Blend everything in a blender while slowly drizzling in the olive oil.
