We love bowl recipes like this because they’re so versatile and great for meal prep. Follow it as is, or customize it based on what you have on hand. In place of farro, you can use quinoa, wild rice, brown rice or – if you’re avoiding grains – chickpeas or lentils. Add more of your favorite veggies, like beets, arugula or carrots, or top with a lean protein of your choosing.

Cook the JUST EggEgg
If using JUST Egg, scramble your desired serving just before you’re ready to serve your bowls. Add a bit of olive oil to a small, nonstick skillet over medium heat and scramble like an egg until all the liquid is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.
If using JUST Egg Folded, chop into bite-sized pieces and add to the roasting pan along with the mushrooms and onions.
