Power Bowl

POWER BOWL DEBUTS AS A SPECIAL APRIL 2

lentils, roasted sweet peppers, roasted cherub tomatoes, grilled chicken/apple sausage, sliced avocado, arugula, pumpkin seeds, feta, extra virgin olive oil & lemon

(Have this for lunch and conquer the world!)

 

FOR LENTILS:

1 1/2 C lentils (rinsed)

6 C water

1 1/2 t salt

1/4 t red pepper flakes

4 whole cloves

1 t dried thyme

Combine all ingredients in a stock pot. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until lentils are tender. Reserve for service.

 

FOR ROASTED PEPPERS AND TOMATOES:

Roast separately as they may have different cooking times. Lightly coat peppers and tomatoes with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and cracked black pepper. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Place into a preheated 425 degree oven until lightly browned and wrinkled. You may need to rotate for even roasting. My countertop oven did the trick.

 

FOR SAUSAGE:

Cut slits into the links (not all the way through) and place on a foil-lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Place into a preheated 425 degree oven. Roast until nicely browned. Rotate sausage for even browning.

Sausage used was purchase at Trader Joe’s. Costco also has a delicious smoked chicken/apple sausage.

 

ASSEMBLE YOUR POWER BOWL:

Place a mound of lentils in the center of the bowl. Arrange ingredients as you see in the photo. Sprinkle with feta and pumpkin seeds. Drizzle with EVOO and lemon. A spritz of Kosher salt and cracked black pepper tops it off.
