Green bowl key ingredients
- Farro: Farro is an ancient grain derived from wheat that has a rich and nutty flavour and a chewy texture. It’s a whole grain that is packed with fibre and delicious as a base for power bowls. You can substitute with any grain you love like rice or quinoa if you prefer.
- Broccoli: packed with nutrients, broccoli makes a great addition to these bowls. It’s also very hearty so it will keep you feeling satiated.
- Edamame: These soybeans are packed with protein so they will help you stay full and keep you energized throughout the day.
- Avocado: Need I say more about avocado? We all know it’s healthy and packed with healthy fats.
- Salad greens: you can use any type of greens you love like spinach, kale or lettuce.
- Pumpkin seeds: These seeds are packed with nutrients and add a little crunch to the Green Goddess Bowls. You can also use any other nuts or seeds you love.
- Green goddess dressing: Homemade green goddess dressing makes the perfect dressing to add to these bowls. If you prefer you can use any other dressing you love.
How to make Green Goddess Bowls
Cook the farro according to package directions. For an extra boost of flavour, try cooking the farro in vegetable broth instead of water.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and toss the broccoli florets with some olive oil and salt. Roast the broccoli in the oven at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until tender.
Blend the dressing ingredients together, then assemble the Green Goddess Bowls and top with the Green Goddess dressing.
How to store leftovers
You can store leftover ingredients separately in separate containers, or you can store leftovers as assembled bowls to have ready to go for lunches. If you want to store leftovers as assembled bowls, just grab your favourite Tupperware and layer the ingredients as you would for the bowl.
I recommend storing the dressing separately and dressing the bowls right before serving. This will prevent the bowls from becoming soggy.
- To save time, prep all the ingredients while the farro cooks. Farro will take about 30 minutes to cook, so once it’s done cooking, you can have everything for the bowls ready to go.
- Swap out farro for any grain you love. Quinoa, brown rice or wild rice would work great in these bowls.
- Add your favourite protein. If you’d like an extra protein boost, add your favourite protein on top of these bowls.

Do you reheat or eat it cold for lunches?
You can do either- general enjoy this cold as leftovers or reheat just the farro and broccoli
What is a ‘handheld blender’?
Hi Thomas, it’s a small blender such as a magic bullet, or an emulsion blender for blending dressings 🙂
I cannot wait to try this. I’m new to edamame beans. Should I buy a tin? Thanks
Edamame beans are usually sold in the freezer section of the grocery store!
Wow, I am so in love with these beautiful green bowls, Jess! 🙂
Thanks so much Ela! Have a great day!
