This is one of me and Hank's favorite recipes! One day I met a friend for lunch at True Food Kitchen. She ordered the Ancient Grain Bowl, and after trying a bite not only was I envying her order ;) I also was convinced to make my own version at home! The Nourish Bowl is a spin off of the True Food Kitchen Ancient Grain Bowl...and it's oh so delish!
Recipe by Emily Bowen
1 - 1.5 lbs of mild sausage
2 sweet potatoes, cubed
1/2 cup of dry quinoa
2 8oz containers of baby bella mushrooms
1/2 sweet onion, diced
3/4 cup shelled edamame
1/2 avocado (1/4 each bowl)
2-4 tbsp of pesto (for topping)
pink salt & garlic salt, to taste
olive oil or avocado oil, to taste
Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Wash, peal, and cube sweet potatoes. Lay them out (not too crowded) on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and pink salt. Roast for 30-35 minutes (depending on how crispy you want them).
Cook quinoa as directed on package.
Wash (and dry) mushrooms. Place them on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and garlic salt. Roast for 15-20 minutes.
Cook sausage in medium skillet over medium-low heat for 7 minutes (or until fully cooked).
Chop and dice onion. Sauté until golden in small pan over medium-low heat with roughly 1-2 tbsp of olive oil.
Place all the ingredients in a bowl & top with pesto and avocado. Yum!
