These Swordfish Grain Bowl recipe very simple to cook and very tasty too!


This Swordfish Grain Bowl recipe has five components, while I’ll break down into bullet points so you can see how easy it is:
  • Whole grain – farro: I love cooking up my whole grains with an extra dose of goodness by adding turmeric to the cooking liquid. It turns the grains a gorgeous deep yellow color and adds healthy benefits.
  • Sweet Potato: Let’s be honest, I’m addicted to sweet potato and this one is just peeled, cubed and boiled until tender, to then be tossed with chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, and seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • Pepper Onion Relish: quickly sauté thinly sliced peppers and onions in olive oil and once tender, splash some of your favorite vinegar (apple cider, white balsamic, anything works!). This adds a hint of acid and brightens the bowl.
  • Swordfish: fish is the easiest of proteins to cook – forget chicken who you can have protein rich fish like swordfish. Just make sure it’s locally sourced – a quick sear and simmer in white wine make this an all time favorite.
