This salad is bad-ass. Along with all the goodies mentioned in the post title, I included a sprinkling of mushrooms, walnuts, goat cheese, and avocado too. Mmmmm. It’s even more exciting because I had pre-cooked ALL the ingredients! (Almost- I did saute onion and garlic. But that takes like 10 minutes).
cooked brown rice
roasted purple carrots, chopped
3 crimini mushrooms
1/4 red onion
2 garlic cloves
a few slices of avocado
a sprinkle of goat cheese
2 tsp chopped walnuts
Saute the onion in olive oil for 5-10 minutes, over low-heat.
Add garlic (after letting it sit chopped for 10 min) and mushrooms.
Pile on the rice, arugula, carrots, and broccoli and stir, mixing it all up.
Add the cheese and a little more olive oil if you need it (and a squeeze of lemon if you like).
Serve it up and add the walnuts and avocado on top.
Snarf it down and start working on your policy paper! WAIT– that’s only me. You can stop at “snarf.”
