Recipe: Spring Green Goddess Grain Bowl

A quick, healthy recipe that is perfect for a spring dinner or lunch.

4 spears asparagus, tough
ends removed, cut into 2-inch
½ cup plain whole-milk yogurt
¼ cup chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup cooked farro
4 ounces baked tofu, cubed
3 radishes, sliced
1 tablespoon Toasted pumpkin

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add snap (or snow) peas and
asparagus; cook until just tender, about 2 minutes. Rinse under cold water.

Whisk yogurt, dill, lemon juice, oil, garlic and salt together in a small bowl.

Place farro in a shallow serving bowl. Top with peas, asparagus, baked tofu and
radishes. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the dressing on top (save extra for other
