Chewsday Tuesday: Super Veggie Power Bowl

Hey friends! It’s the very first edition of my new blog post recipe series: Chewsday Tuesday!

Welcome, Welcome! Come one, come all.

…Okay, ehhhh. Let me get to the point already.

As you guys know, I recently partnered with the amazing New South Coop team for their 2017 season and they have graciously let me in on their weekly CSA produce boxes. (You can read all about it on my post here if you missed it.) This week was the very first box of the season, and let me tell you–it was packed full of so many bright colors and yummy produce! So, with my new series “Chewsday Tuesday”, I’ll be sharing a new recipe with you every Tuesday using a few of the ingredients in my CSA box. Of course, if you’re not lucky enough to be in Arkansas with us, you can grab these ingredients at your local grocery store or farmers market to make your own dish. Make sure to hashtag #CBHChewsdayTuesday when you make your own! I’d love to see what you come up with!

Alright, alright to the recipe we go!

Today is all about eating the colors of the rainbow with this delicious Super Veggie Power Bowl. This recipe is about simplicity and freshness to make for one heck of a delicious and nutritious meal. Now, you’re more than welcome to mix and match, switch it, change it–re-arrange it however you’d like. This is just a starting off point to get your bowl moving and shaking. Feel free to top it off with whatever your taste buds are hungry for.

Here’s what I used:

Sweet Potato (Peeled and Sliced)

1 handful Spring Mix lettuce

1 handful Spinach

1/2 head of Broccoli (chopped evenly)

1 handful of Beets

2 Carrots

1/2 Avocado

1 bunch Asparagus

For my added protein, I chose shredded rotisserie chicken that I picked up from Whole Foods. This is where you can choose any type of extra protein you’d like: Eggs, turkey, salmon, tuna, etc.

Step 1) Prepare your veggies. Go ahead and peel, slice, and chop up your fresh veggies. I like to add a little drizzle of avocado or olive oil on top to make sure they get nice and crispy. Then I sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on top. Trust me, this is where all of the yummy flavor comes out when they’re done roasting.

Step 2) Roast your veggies at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Sometimes, the sweet potatoes take a tiny bit longer than the rest–but just keep an eye on all of them to make sure you don’t overcook the rest. I like to set my timer for 10 minutes and go in to mix everything around and rotate them to make sure they cook nice and evenly. Then I set my timer for a few additional minutes to finish up their roasting time.

Step 3) Layer it all in. I like to put my sweet potatoes on the bottom then layer the rest of the veggies/protein on top. Feel free to mix it around though to keep the flavor going throughout the whole dish.

Step 4) ENJOY!

And that’s all she wrote! How easy was that? 3 steps and you’re done! Will you make yourself one this week? Promise me, you will! I hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to let me know what you think in the comments below.
