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.
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.
