I was recently sent some frozen and dry grains from VillageHarvest to try. I have reviewed these grains before and really like them. They come pre-cooked and frozen and also dry. I love the frozen ones especially because it is so easy to just microwave your grains for a few minutes and have healthy, whole-grains regular to go.
They have a variety of quinoa, wheatberries, brown rice, wild rice, farro, jasmine rice and more. With the products that I was sent, I decided to create a recipe using tzatziki sauce and farmer’s market fresh vegetables.
The recipe turned out great and I have been enjoying this throughout the week for my lunch at work.
Mediterranean Tzatziki Salad
1 package frozen Village Harvest wheatberries
1 package frozen Village Harvest quinoa
1 cup tzatziki sauce (you can purchase this cucumber sauce at most grocery stores in the refrigerated section)
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
2 stalks diced green onion
1 small cucumber, finely diced
- Empty packages of grains into a bowl and heat according to instructions.
- Add tzatziki sauce to grains and mix well.
- When ready to serve, top about a cup of grains with cherry tomatoes, green onion and diced cucumber.
This recipe is very simple, is very fresh and tasty.
The addition of Village Harvest grains were very tasty. I would definitely recommend purchasing these pre-cooked whole grains to save time and to have healthy food ready to go in a pinch.
