Power Meal Prep Bowls Recipe

Looking for an easy way to meal prep? Then you’ve got to try these power prep meal bowls. Packed with nutrient-rich vegetables like zucchini, summer squash, mushrooms and onions along with chewy wheat berries, roasted tofu and Litehouse® creamy Garden Ranch. These are a must-save for healthy meal-prep throughout the week.

To start, you’ll roast a big batch of veggies for use in the power prep meal bowls. I love making a batch (or two) of roasted veggies like this to eat throughout the week. When you aren’t enjoying them here, try them tucked into pita sandwiches or folded in with scrambled eggs for a simple, healthy meal.

Power Meal Prep Bowl with Purely Balanced Garden Ranch

As a grain base, wheat berries are unexpected, hearty and the perfect addition in these bowls. If you don’t have access to wheat berries, then I’d recommend quinoa, farro, brown rice or any other hearty grain. Depending on the age of your berries, you may need to cook them longer than the directed 30 minutes. Check after thirty minutes and if they still need additional time, then continue cooking and check again every five minutes until chewy but not tough.

Tofu is a favorite addition and an inexpensive and quick cooking protein, making it a no brainer for these power prep meal bowls. To keep things simple, toss with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and roast alongside the veggies until golden brown and slightly crisp. If you aren’t a fan of tofu, feel free to swap in with any favorite protein choice.

Litehouse® new purely balanced dressings are thick and creamy, just like your favorite Litehouse® dressings. Made with Greek yogurt and 0g added sugar and 45 calories per servings, these new dressings are incredibly delicious, just like you’d expect from Litehouse®.

To cap things off, garnish with fresh parsley or dill to bring out more of the ranch flavors and a few cracks of freshly ground black pepper.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium Zucchini, diced
  • 2 medium Yellow Summer Squash, diced
  • 1 medium White Onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2-3 tbsp. Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 (14 oz.) Package Extra-Firm Tofu, drained and pressed
  • Salt/pepper
  • 1 c. Uncooked Wheat Berries
  • ½ c. Litehouse® Purely Balanced Garden Ranch
  • Fresh parsley/dill, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place the wheat berries and 3 cups of water in a medium sauce pan, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer, cover and cook for at about 30 minutes. They should be chewy, but not tough. If needed, continue to cook longer and check every 5 minutes. You may need to cook up to 20 minutes longer, depending on the age of your berries and the variety purchased.
  3. While the wheatberries are cooking, toss the zucchini, squash, onion and mushrooms with 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through, until tender. Remove from oven and set aside.
  4. Toss the cubed tofu with remaining olive oil and another generous pinch of salt and pepper. Place on a separate baking sheet in a single layer and cook for 25 minutes, until golden brown and tender, stirring halfway through cooking.
  5. When ready to assemble, divide the cooked wheat berries, tofu and roasted vegetables amoung 4 bowls. Drizzle with Litehouse® Purely Balanced Garden Ranch and garnish with freshly cracked black pepper, fresh parsley and dill.
