Elen's Plant-Based Power Street Bowl

Posted on October 23, 2015 by Anne Milneck | 0 comments

Our multi-talented and uber-healthy Elen is a world of information when it comes to a plant-based lifestyle. She's all about packing maximum nutrition--in this case protein--alongside tons of flavor. Her street bowl packs some serious protein power including Moroccan Quinoa, Rougarou Roasted Chickpeas and Lemon Lime Sautéed Squash. We love the sweet and savory notes along with lots of crunch. 

Moroccan Quinoa

This recipe is a variation on our Moroccan Farro with Quinoa subbed in for the grain. 

Ingredients for the Moroccan Quinoa:

1 cup Quinoa

1 Tbl All Natural Avocado Oil

1 Tbl Moroccan Blend

1/2 cup toasted pine nuts

1/3 cup raisins

Pinch Salt

Directions:

Cook farro according to package directions. Drain (if necessary) and cool slightly. In a saute pan, heat the Avocado Oil over medium heat. Add the farro and Moroccan Blend. Stir and heat through until the spices are aromatic. Fold in the raisins and pine nuts. Season to taste with salt. Serve as a side dish or vegetarian main dish.

Lemon-Lime Sauteed Squash

Ingredients:

2 cups squash and zucchini cut into large chunks

1 Tbl Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tsp Lemon Lime Salmon Rub

Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

In a large saute pan, heat the Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil over medium-high heat. Add the squash and zucchini and sprinkle with the Lemon Lime Salmon Rub. Saute, moving constantly with a spatula or wooden spoon, until the squash begins to brown. Cook until tender-crisp, about five minutes. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper.
