Recipe Ingredients for Lightened Up Protein Power Goddess Bowl

3 cups cooked green lentils
2 cups wheatberries
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 red onion
4 garlic cloves
1 red bell pepper
1 large tomato
3 cups kale
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup Tahini
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Nutritional yeast
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for Lightened Up Protein Power Goddess Bowl

  1. Cook lentils and speltberries (or grain of choice) according to package directions. I did this the night before to save time. Drain and set aside.

  2. Prepare the Lightened Up tahini-Lemon dressing in food processor (see below for recipe).

  3. In a large skillet over low-medium heat, add your olive oil and sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic for a few minutes, being careful not to burn. Now add in the chopped red pepper and tomato and sauté for another 7-8 minutes.

  4. Stir in the chopped kale or spinach and sauté for another few minutes, just until tender. Stir in the full batch of tahini-Lemon dressing, the cooked & drained grains and lentils, and simmer on low for another few minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the minced parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with lemon wedges and zest. Makes 6 cups.
