  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 batch of balsamic roasted tomatoes recipe link in post above
  • 4-8 tablespoons walnut pesto recipe link in post above
  • 1 15- oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed


  • Place whole grain of choice and vegetable broth in a small pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes and then remove from heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes still covered before fluffing with a fork.
  • Divide cooked whole grain, balsamic roasted tomatoes, and chickpeas among four bowls. Top each with 1-2 tablespoons of pesto and dig in!
