Zesty Artichoke Basil Grain Bowl

Zesty Artichoke Basil Grain Bowl



for 2 servings

  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 carrot, large bunch, cut into thirds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick® Zesty Spice Blend
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups vegetable stock (480 mL)
  • 1 cup buckwheat groats (160 g)


  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • ½ cup pistachio (60 g)
  • ¼ cup grapeseed oil (60 mL)
  • ¼ cup water (60 mL)
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ⅓ cup fresh basil (10 g), torn


  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese (55 g)
  • 14 oz artichoke heart (395 g), drained and halved (1 can)
  • ½ cup fresh spinach (20 g), torn
  • ½ cup fresh basil (20 g), chopped



  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F (220˚C).
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, then add the carrots and cook for about 5 minutes, until slightly tender but not cooked through. Drain and pat dry.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the carrots with the olive oil, Zesty spice blend, and pepper until evenly coated. Spread the carrots on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and crispy.

  5. Using vegetable stock instead of water, cook the buckwheat groats according to the package instructions. Set aside.
  6. Make the dressing: In a blender, combine the champagne vinegar, pistachios, grapeseed oil, and water and blend until a semi-smooth consistency is reached. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the basil and pulse a few times to incorporate.
  7. Divide buckwheat groats between 2 bowls. Top with the carrots, feta, artichoke hearts, spinach, and basil. Drizzle over the dressing.
  8. Enjoy!
