Recipe ReDux: Rainbow Grain Bowl

April’s Recipe ReDux theme is to share a new idea for lunch. Like most people, I’m a creature of habit when it comes to lunch.  I stick to my salads, sandwiches, and soups, but this challenge got me thinking about ways to switch up my old favorites.  I took a page out of the book of most of my favorite healthy “fast food” joints in NYC and decided to create a healthy bowl.  The best part about this grain bowl is that it’s completely customizable to your taste.  For the grain, I used a combo of sorghum and quinoa, but you can also use brown rice or bulgur.  I used bright and colorful, crunchy vegetables, but you can use whatever vegetable toppings you like and add any dressing, cheese or meat. What’s your favorite combination of flavors to throw into a bowl?
