Marinated Mushroom Bowls with Lentils and Wild Rice

This meal-in-a-bowl is full of bright flavors and delicious textures. A mix of crimini mushrooms are marinated in an Asian-inspired dressing and paired with hearty grains and lentils alongside crunchy vegetables. You can swap the French lentils with another type of lentil and cooked chickpeas are also a delicious option. Any grain such as brown rice or quinoa can be substituted for the wild rice.

#Repost @zestmylemon I hope you’re having a great day so far. I’m doing breakfast for lunch today. An organic free range egg cooked in avocado oil with sautéed veggies and chili roasted chickpeas. The recipe for the chili roasted chickpeas can now be found on my blog with the link in my bio. Enjoy the rest of your day.
