When you don’t have one of these available…
You need this recipe for Chol Hamoed Sukkahless Power Lunch!
After all that delicious, rich, heavy Yom Tov eating I need some clean eating. Taking the kids on trips to far flung locals (like Six Flags New England- wohoo!) means we also need options that don’t require a sukkah. This Chol Hamoed Sukkahless Power Lunch is perfect for any family trip!
Fresh Box Farms makes it easier with their bug free, pecticide free Kale. This quinoa/chickpea/kale salad has it all. Protein, carbs, veggies, and all that goodness is going to power us through some serious roller coasters. Individually packed in small containers means it’s easy to take along with us anywhere.
I know some of you are thinking, “I would never make that! My family doesn’t like quinoa or chickpeas or kale!” Try it anyway. If someone really can’t stand one of the ingredients than substitute for another but I will tell you this; the combination is really, really delicious. The lemon juice adds a touch of brightness that pulls the dish together amazingly well. Happy Sukkot!
