  4. Then stir in the turmeric and ginger.

Power Bowl

Directions
  1. While the quinoa is cooking, segment the grapefruit: with a sharp knife, cut a thin slice off ends of the grapefruit. Then cut rind off all the way around, using downward cutting motions. Trim off all remaining white pith. Hold grapefruit over a small bowl, and with a small paring knife, cut out grapefruit and orange segments, capturing any extra juice in the bowl. Discard any seeds.
  2. Divide the greens and quinoa between 4 bowls.
  3. Arrange the grapefruit and remaining ingredients over the top. Drizzle with the grapefruit juice (whisk in a little olive oil if desired).
  4. Sprinkle with pepitas.

    Variation:
    • Toss the garbanzo beans with a little olive oil and chili powder or smoked paprika for extra flavor.
    • Crumbled feta is a tasty addition to this bowl as well.
