I threw this lunch together at midnight last night because I needed to have SOMETHING to eat the next day at work. It looked so pretty I took a picture of it (above). I wasn’t so sure I’d like it, but it turned out to be DELICIOUS. The only thing I would do differently next time is include two – not just one – frozen frozen mango ‘cube’.
I really loved the mixture of quinoa, wheat berries, and mango — which I just mixed together with my fork after the meal had been heated. This contrasted nicely with the smoky-salty bean soup. And then the kale mixed with the cilantro sauce, was another delicious and interesting flavor.
So if you are looking for a light and healthy – and easy to throw together lunch – try this one yourself!
1 pre-frozen flavor Cilantro Chutney
1 pre-frozen cube of pureed champagne mango ( Just puree peeled and seeded mango in blender, freeze puree in silicone mini muffin pan, and once frozen store in a plastic freezer bag in the freezer – just like you may already do for all your ‘flavor cubes.’)
1 portion of cooked quinoa
1 portion of cooked wheat berries
1 portion of lightly steamed kale leaves (stems removed)
To make this lunch, I just assembled these items. That’s it! It’s that easy!
Enjoy and be healthy!
