For Avocado Pesto:


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Place cauliflower florets on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to coat evenly. Bake for 20 minutes, until tender.
  3. In a medium saucepan, cook farro (or other grain) according to package directions. Transfer the cooked grains to a bowl.
  4. In the same saucepan, heat a little water. Add kale, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook until the kale is wilted, about 5 minutes.
  5. To arrange bowls, add kale, grains, beans, cauliflower, sauerkraut, avocado pesto, and a garnish of fresh herbs.
  6. For the avocado pesto: In a blender or small food processor, add avocado, basil, spinach, lemon juice, garlic, and walnuts. Pulse until smooth, adding a couple tablespoons of water if needed.


*You can roast any vegetables you want! Feel free to go with broccoli, asparagus, bell peppers, zucchini, etc.
**You’ll want 2 cups of cooked grains, so follow the package directions for whatever grain you’re using! Rice, quinoa, buckwheat, and kamut are all great options.
