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.
