Summer Squash Grain Bowls

Reheating Summer Squash Grain Bowls!

Last week, I got the ultimate summer text message from Ray at Applefield farms. It was basically nothing more than a bunch of expletives surrounding the word “zucchini”. When summer squash comes in, it comes in hard, and it doesn’t stop coming for a good three weeks. He’s up to his armpits in it, and it’s our time to bail him out. Fortunately for you, and me, summer squash is delicious, and incredibly versatile. I think we’re using it every day this week, in some shape or form. Today, simply roasted and plated atop a nice poached grains salad. Super simple. There’s really nothing better than simply roasted veggies and poached grains. It’s super healthy. I’m not a nutritionalist, and I don’t claim to know more than I do about food, but I definitely know that eating this bowl is one of the healthier choices that you could make all week. Feel free to chime in and inform me of how much more you know about health foods than I do. Honestly, I could probably do a google search but I don’t want you guys thinking that I know anything about nutritional benefits. I don’t. I know that if you start with good product, treat it well, and have wholesome and sustainable eating in mind, you’re probably going to end up with a ethical and enriching dinner. So that’s just what we do!

To reheat, simply remove the ramekin of sherry vinaigrette, and microwave the bowl till it’s nice and hot. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the top, mix everything up, and enjoy! Honestly though, I wouldn’t even bother heating this up. Really. It’s much better cold. But to each their own! Enjoy 🙂


If you got tuscan roasted chicken breast:

Please don’t be upset. We did not get airline breasts in. I’m still figuring out how the supply chain works, and why it doesn’t work, after over a year of doing this- and I am 100% sure that I have no idea what I’m doing. But, we did get some nice organic ABF boneless skinless breasts, they just aren’t organic ABF airline breasts. Don’t worry. The price is nice for you tonight. Regardless, Tuscan marinated chicken is a nice addition to any salad, but will truly benefit the grain bowl in a way that only you will be able to describe. To reheat, broil or grill the chicken until it’s nice and hot, about 2-3 minutes per side. Once it’s hot, slice it up and plate it right on top of your hot or cold grain bowl. That’s it! Thanks for being understanding, and hope you enjoy 🙂
