Recipe – Seven Wholegrains with Green Vegetables

Last week I posted this picture and promised to share the recipe, so here it is!

Wholegrains, vegetables and pesto This is seven wholegrains with green vegetables and let me tell you, what I was expecting to be a dull and tasteless dish turned out to be a real gem. Super quick and easy to make, perfect for taking to work in your lunchbox, tasty and healthy!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pouch of Seeds of Change Seven Wholegrains
  • 1 courgette, grated
  • 5-10 brussels sprouts, halved
  • Handful of sugar snap peas
  • Handful of asparagus, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • Teaspoon of low fat pesto
  • Chicken stock paste or cube

 

 

Method

  1. Start out by boiling some water in a pan, and add your stock. I like Knorr touch of taste which is a chicken stock concentrated liquid.
  2. Add your sprouts and cook for 2 minutes
  3. Add the sugar snap peas and asparagus and boil for a further 2 minutes
  4. Meanwhile, add the grains to the microwave for 2 minutes
  5. Empty the grains into your bowl
  6. Drain the vegetables and add to the bowl, and mix together
  7. Return the pan to the heat and add the courgette, dry frying for 30 seconds – 1 minute, just to heat through
  8. Add the courgette to the bowl
  9. Drizzle over the pesto and give everything one final mix to ensure everything has a garlicky, herby coating
  10. ENJOY!

Really quick, really tasty and healthy!

If you can’t get your hands on the Seeds of Change 7 wholegrains, use your favourite wholegrains and cook them as required. Quinoa, barley and brown rice are all good choices.
