Greens And Grains – The New “Carb” Bowl

  • Prep Time:
  • Total Time:
  • Yield:


There are three main ingredients:

  • protein (grilled chicken in this case)
  • green (micro arugula – seriously, WAY more tastier that full-grown arugula)
  • grain (Alessi Organic Farro)

Then, get crazy with toppings:

Since it’s summer, I just added a ton of fresh veggies we had on-hand, but this is where you get your chance to get creative!

  • raw corn shaved off the cob, 1 ear
  • sliced avocado
  • one small heirloom tomato, chopped
  • sprinkle of fresh raw cheddar cheese from an update farmer

You’ll want a dressing:

To pull it all together you want a dressing that is both light and refreshing without being calorie-dense. We went with a lemon balsamic vinaigrette:

  • 2 tablespoons Alessi Balsamic Reduction
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
