Nuts + Grains = 1 Great Meatless Monday

We’re always looking for different ways to make our Meatless Mondays exciting and delicious. As the weather cools down, we look for comforting and hearty dishes featuring seasonal veggies, grains and nuts. You may be used to looking at rice and grains as more of a side dish, but with the right pairing they make for a nutritious and hearty meal. Here are some of our favorite nut and grain combos, but remember, you can always substitute with whatever you have on hand (we’re looking at you, quinoa).

Couscous + Almonds = Roasted Cauliflower Salad

 

Orzo + Pine Nuts = Lemon Orzo with Mushrooms and Pine Nuts

 

Arborio Rice + Walnuts = Asparagus and Parsley Pesto Risotto Bake
