Recipe recap: Superfoods Bowl

With the end of the year approaching, we thought it would be neat to reflect back on some of our most popular recipes. This recipe was tailored for popular fall fruits and vegetables, but with winter now officially here, try switching it up for a few current seasonal options. Remember: the more colorful your dish is, the greater range of nutrients you are eating!

  • For fruit toppings, consider oranges, pears, avocados, grapefruit, and cranberries as a replacement for or in addition to pomegranate seeds.
  • For veggie options besides cucumbers or squash, try beets, sweet potatoes, cauliflowers, shaved Brussels sprouts, radishes, snow peas, or broccoli.
  • For additional toppings, consider pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts or almonds for an added crunch!
  • For other grain options besides brown rice, give quinoa or farro a shot!
  • For other dressing options, try making your own balsamic vinaigrette {1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, (optional 1 tsp brown sugar), 1 Tbsp chopped garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil} or substituting fresh grapefruit juice for the fresh lemon juice in our Superfoods bowl dressing recipe.
