Lemon Basil and Mixed Grains and Veggie Bowl

This is such a great meal to make ahead and enjoy for quick dinners or lunches to go. You can certainly add in/swap out whatever herbs and veggies you want. No excuses for not eating well when you are prepared with something you love on hand!

  • 4 cups cooked millet and quinoa

  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced

  • 4 cups spinach leaves, chopped

  • 1.5 cups chickpeas (that’s one can if you’re not using ones made at home- just drain and rinse)

  • 1 cup sliced black olives

  • 2 large roasted tomatoes

  • Large handful of basil, julienned

  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped

  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

  • Pepper to taste

Zest and juice lemons over the cooked grains, add onion, garlic, nutritional yeast, and pepper and fold in. Add in the vegetables and stir together. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. This will last several days in the refrigerator.
