Chef Abra Berens
Stock Cafe at Local Foods
In an NRA Show demo called Bowling for Breakfast, chef Berens created a high-protein bowl packed with beans and greens. Instead of beans, she explained that cooked grains make a good substitute, such as farro, quinoa or barley. A wedge of frittata or omelet can sub for the hard-boiled egg, and a yogurt or buttermilk dressing can be swapped in for the sauce.
3/4 cup cooked black beans
1 hardboiled egg, quartered
1 cup greens and/or seasonal veggies (kale, tomatoes, shaved cauliflower)
1/4 cup sauce (a mix of olive oil, hot sauce, vinegar)
1. In large bowl, toss all ingredients together and taste.
2. Adjust seasonings and acid until desired.
3. Serve at room temperature or cold.
