Roasted Rainbow Carrots & Wheat Berry Salad

Change your self – you’re in management.

That is one other lovely salad that’s simple to piece along with the attention sweet courtesy of gorgeous wheat berries and a bag of attractive roasted rainbow carrots. This dish is proof that having a favorite French dressing available can simply encourage a completely new salad or dish, like this one. I really like these rainbow carrots within the winter (these don’t are available my winter CSA field!), as the colors alone are sufficient to cheer me up.

Be at liberty to mess around with this recipe with added feta cheese or maybe some peeled parmesan. In fact I take advantage of GRAIN Wheat Berries which might be grown on my greatest buddy and enterprise companion Janna’s dad’s farm in Tyner, Saskatchewan. Bob’s wheat berries are extremely excessive in protein, which make them an incredible supply of stable plant primarily based diet, with all the good thing about the entire grain too. In the event you haven’t tried them but I extremely advocate you do! They make an incredible substitute for Californian grown grains (like rice) in grain bowls, and one of many unimaginable issues about grain grown in Canada is that these crops require little to no irrigation when grown within the prairies (that is additionally true of all Canadian grown legumes too). With all the drought points in California and all over the world, a part of my deal with consuming as regionally as potential means making decisions that – to the perfect of my data – contribute positively to the world as an entire, along with making sense for the wholesome of my household, and to our funds. As time goes on, I can’t actually justify consuming grains grown in areas the place it doesn’t make ecological or environmental sense to take action. Particularly when the provides from our high-quality prairies are so unimaginable and so plentiful. Just a bit meals for thought 😉
