My new favorite lunch is a fusion of many favorites – fresh vegetables, grilling, and tasty food that is also vibrant and energizing. I call it my lunchtime power stack, or veggie stack.
This stack started with a base of steamed* cauliflower. Next up, a mashed sweet potato. Top that with a slice of grilled pineapple, a few grilled onion rings, and lightly steamed* asparagus. A generous sprinkling of sesame adds more great flavor.
*I have also grilled all ingredients using a grill basket.
This works warm with freshly steamed and grilled components. Cold or room temperature is also good, especially on a warm Saturday while sitting in the sun with a dachshund.
Basil would like to make it known he is not picky – warm or cool, he will take his power stack either way.
Sweet and savory, fun and filling, I have been stacking my lunches all week. I am excited to share other versions of the stack – even more colorful!
