Recipe type: main course
Serves: 4
  • 1 bunch broccolini, cut into pieces
  • 3 large kale leaves, chopped (about 3 loose packed cups)
  • Juice of ½ lemon, more to taste
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 watermelon radish, or 3 red radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ½ cup fresh leafy herbs (ie, mint, basil, and/or dill)
  • 1 batch Roasted Chickpeas
  • 1 batch Lemony Pea Pesto
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Prepare a large pot of salted boiling water and a large bowl of ice water. Drop the broccolini into the boiling water and blanch for about 1 minute, or until tender but still vibrant green. Transfer the broccolini to the ice water and let it cool for 1 minute. Drain and set aside to dry as you make the other components.
  2. Place the kale into a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Massage the leaves until they soften and wilt down.
  3. Divide the quinoa among 4 meal prep containers. Add the kale, watermelon radish, avocado, herbs and broccolini. Season with drizzles of olive oil, squeezes of lemon juice, and sprinkles of salt and pepper. Add the roasted chickpeas and top with dollops of pesto.
