Greens Bowl

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth

  • ½ cup quinoa

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups chopped kale

  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts, toasted


  • ¾ cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. To prepare greens bowl: Add 1 inch of water to a large saucepan and fit with a steamer basket. Add cauliflower and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and steam until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer the cauliflower to a large bowl and cover to keep warm. Discard the water.

  2. Add broth, quinoa and salt to the pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in kale and beans; cook until the quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the cauliflower, cover and remove from heat.

  3. To prepare dressing: Whisk yogurt, water, oil, garlic, vinegar, lemon zest, lemon juice, turmeric, salt and pepper in a small bowl until well mixed.

  4. Drizzle the quinoa mixture with the dressing and sprinkle with walnuts.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
