INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the midnight grains
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Add the midnight grains to a small saucepan and add 1¾ cups water. Bring grains to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 25 to 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, covered.
2
Blend the dressing
Peel and roughly chop the shallot, carrots, and ginger. Add the chopped shallot, carrots, and ginger to a blender. Add the rice vinegar, tamari, 2 tbsp vegetable oil, and ¼ cup water. Blend on high until smooth and season the carrot ginger dressing with salt.
3
Roast the broccolini
Trim 1 inch away from the bottom of the broccolini stems and transfer the remaining stalks to a baking sheet. Toss with 2 tsp vegetable oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until the broccolini is bright green and crisp-tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
4
Prepare the zucchini
Trim and use a peeler to peel the zucchini into ribbons. Add to a large bowl and toss with 2 tsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
5
Finish the broccolini
Once the broccolini is finished, toss with the hemp seeds on the baking sheet.
6
Serve
Divide the midnight grains between large bowls. Top with the roasted broccolini, zucchini ribbons, and shredded red cabbage. Drizzle the macro bowls with carrot ginger dressing.
