Sometimes I find it challenging to come up with new, delicious meal ideas. Luckily, last weekend while visiting my family in New Jersey I had an amazing dish at a local restaurant called, Harvest. I’m calling them Chicken Mushroom Wraps because I can’t remember the actual name. It was one of their daily specials so not part of their regular menu.
As I was eating this delicious dish, I realized this is something I could easily make at home. Full disclosure, I haven’t tried to recreate it just yet but it’s on my list.
While it might look complicated (or even unappetizing) from my weird photo (not a great food photographer), it was only a few simple ingredients and I promise they were really good:
- collard greens
- a variety of sauteed mushrooms
- purple cabbage
- crispy roasted chickpeas
- roasted chicken (or skip the meat if you want them to be vegan/vegetarian)
- salsa verde
I loved how there was a decent serving of vegetables in every bite without feeling like you were just eating vegetables. They were bursting with flavor and texture.
Part of maintaining a well-balanced life is finding simple, healthy recipes that I truly love. For me, food is life. I need to enjoy what I am eating and a basic salad just doesn’t cut it sometimes. It makes me super happy when I come across cool new dishes like these. I love getting inspiration from everywhere I go.
If you’re in a food rut, try recreating these Chicken Mushroom Wraps. They were very filling and delicious. Perfect for lunch or dinner.
