Prep Time:

Serves: 4

Ingredients

Grains

  • 1/4 cup millet, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat, rinsed
  • 1 cup water

Marinaded Veggies

  • 1 eggplant, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Optional Topping

Instructions

  1. Place all marinaded veggies ingredients in a large bowl. Cover, and place in the fridge for 1 hour (optional – just makes the flavors combine nicely)
  2. Once marinaded, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicon baking mat. Cook in a preheated oven at 375F for 50 minutes, stirring once.
  3. Meanwhile, combine grains and water in a medium sized saucepan. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and allow to cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and keep the lid on until ready to use.
  4. Once veggies are ready, portion out rice and place veggies over top. Sprinkle with Herbamare and add an optional 1 teaspoon extra virgin coconut oil to each bowl.
