Ingredients
Salmon Bowl
  • 1 4-ounce salmon fillet
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil, olive or coconut, melted
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces fresh green beans, stem end trimmed
  • 1/2 cup cooked tricolor quinoa
  • 1 cup arugula, packed
  • 2 ounces yellow pepper, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • Blueberries (optional ‘maybe’ food)
  • Pumpkin seeds
Arugula Dressing
  • 2 cups arugula, packed
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
Salmon Bowl
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Place salmon fillet, skin side down, on a rimmed baking sheet drizzled with oil. Season with dried sage, salt and pepper and roast until just cooked through, about 12 minutes. Remove salmon filet from oven, set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Add green beans and blanch just until bright green and tender crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain green beans and rinse under cold water for 1 to 2 minutes, set aside.
  3. To assemble bowl, first add arugula and cooked tricolor quinoa, then top with roasted salmon filet. Next add green beans and sliced yellow pepper to the side, then drizzle with Arugula Dressing (see recipe below). Finally garnish bowl with a few blueberries (optional ‘maybe’ food) and pumpkin seeds.
Arugula Dressing
  1. In the bowl of a food processor, add arugula and minced garlic and pulse until finely chopped. Add lemon juice or apple cider vinegar and process until smooth. With the food processor running, drizzle in olive oil to make a smooth dressing. If necessary, thin with a bit of water to desired consistency.
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate unused portion.
