After all my Valentine’s indulgence (which carried over for a couple more weeks… opps), I am trying to get back into health-mode.  I have had a bunch of “detox” meals pinned and wanted to get on trying some of them… first on the docket – a Green Goddess Bowl!

Step One – Layout the following:

  • 2-3 cups cooked grains (I used couscous, but quinoa, barley, brown rice are all great options)
  • 2-3 cups sautéed greens (I used 2 heads of broccoli, 1 head of kale and sprinkled some edamame – you can use any green veggie you like, brussel sprouts, peas, spinach, etc.)
  • Sweet Accent: I used citrus (I used a Cara Cara orange, but grapefruit could be a great option)
  • Garnish: Avocado and fresh chopped green herbs

Step Two – Sauté Greens:

  • Sauté green ingredients on med-high until tender with the following ingredients:
    • 2 Tbsp white miso paste
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 2 Tbsp blood orange olive oil
    • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
    • Pepper to taste

Step Three – Fold:

  • Add to large bowl and fold together:
    • 3 cups fluffed couscous (or another cooked grain)
    • Some orange zest and juice of 1/2 an orange if you desire
    • Sautéed Greens

Step Four – Garnish:

  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Chopped fresh herbs (I used cilantro, but basil, chives or parsley work too)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion (red onion would work as well)
  • 1 large orange, peeled and diced

Step Five – Dressing:
*choose one below or use your own – or for lighter version, just use fresh lemon juice over top bowl

Tahini Maple

  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • Pepper

Creamy Wasabi

  • 1 tsp wasabi powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp mayo or greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
  • Pepper
