Gazpacho Grain Bowl with Confetti Veggies | LemonyThyme.com

I made a big batch of Gazpacho to take to a family gathering.  I thought it would be a nice refreshing change and it was.  However, even after our party I had a good amount left, along with my favorite fine diced confetti colored veggies.  This is how the Gazpacho Grain Bowl with Confetti Veggies was born.

Grain Medley with wild rice, split peas, orzo, couscous & quinoa

I prepared a batch of Quinoa combined with wild rice, split peas, orzo and couscous.  Seasoned it with salt, pepper and cumin.  Delicious.  This became the base for our bowl, although today for lunch I added a layer of fresh baby spinach as well.

Confetti Veggies

One of my favorite ways to serve Gazpacho is with fine diced multi-colored raw veggies sprinkled on top.  Choose any of your favorites like tomato, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumber, jalapeno, red onion…  And personally, nice fresh gazpacho loves a squeeze of lemon juice.  I added about a half cup of the above to our grain bowl, finished with a generous drizzle of Gazpacho.  Here’s our go-to Gazpacho recipe.
