This summer inspired Grilled Vegetable Kamut Pasta Salad is not only a pleasant sight but a pretty amazingly beneficial, hearty dish that makes the most delicious side to any barbecued main you’ll have this summer!
So you have a pretty sweet idea for dinner tonight and instantaneously start to dance around the kitchen only to get interrupted by the scary thought of what your going to possibly serve with it… ahhhh.
Yes, it’s happened to all of us, often.
But now, I have a resolution for all of you beautiful people!
Think about really any veggies you absolutely love, grilling them to perfection and then throwing them in with a high-energy, high nutrient ancient grain that is known for much more than its great taste and texture. Im talking about a highly nutritional, hypoallergenic wheat that is easily digestible, low in cholesterol, high in fibre and contains proteins, vitamins & minerals that will give you that wonderful feeling of fullness we all aim for.
Some of the amazing health benefits of Kamut are:
- supports bone health (containing 96 milligrams of magnesium in one cup cooked)
- aids digestive system (with 7grams dietary fibre per serving)
- detoxes the body (contains high amounts of phosphorus which aids to detox the liver)
- high source of protein (which keeps you fuller longer and aids in weight loss/weight management)
- fights the common cold (with the presence of zinc)
- supports brain health
- balances hormones
- lowers cholesterol
I decided to use asparagus, zucchini, peppers and corn keeping the green and yellow theme and because that’s really what I had on hand however, feel free to use really any hearty veg you wish!
I want to thank my friends at Chosen Foods for always providing me with the most amazing avocado oils to marinate my sexy veggies with!
Cheers and Happy July to you all!
