Something New for Your Family Table.....Week #19 Spring Grain Bowls

Happy Tuesday friends!!  I am still loving eating more plant based meals each week. We have been sticking to about 2 per week and am really building up a stash of great recipes. Here is a recent one we made and will definitely make again!
I love "bowls.  I like to layer different, unexpected flavors in a bowl. I think they look pretty and taste so fresh! I found this recipe for Spring Grain Bowls from Cooking Light
I followed the recipe, but also added some grilled shrimp and a little goat cheese.
 I loved the crispness of the peas and carrots. Our grocery store carries shredded beets that have some flavor added. I got a smoky chile flavor and they were so good
These bowls were pretty simple to make and you could easily sub the farro for another grain. We normally do quinoa or couscous, but we all liked the farro. It has kind of a nutty flavor. Just a heads up that it does take a bit longer to cook than most grains. 
This dish would be perfect to take on the go if your kids have activities around dinner time and would also make a great lunch!!  And you can get creative with whatever veggies you want to add!

See you tomorrow for my May Book Review. There's always room for one more at our family table.
