    Chef’s Note: This recipe can be customized in some many different ways – there is no wrong way to make a grain bowl! Don’t love arugula? No problem, go with kale or spinach instead! Want to make it vegan? Skip the cheese and go with marinated chickpeas for a little extra protein and our market vinaigrette instead of herby green sauce!
