Recipes from Today’s Show: Packable Lunches

Published by

TODAY on MHTV: Today we are killing two birds with one stone! If you are in a lunch rut these three hearty grain salads will be great for dinner as well as lunch the next day (the flavors only get better as it sits overnight). Carrots and celery add crunch to my barley, mushroom, and dill salad; my farro, feta, and mint salad is packed with protein-rich chickpeas; and my super-simple brown rice and chicken salad gets a burst of flavor from sesame seeds on top.

    After watching today’s show, I just had to make this salad. Luckily I had most of the items already. I subbed canned shrooms for the creminis (for now) and green pepper for the celery. Delish!!! I’m making this salad for out-of-town guests this weekend! Thanks, Lucinda.

    I am looking for the recipe that you made with edamame and corn. It looked really good and I would like to make it. This was on the Mad Hungry on 9/24/12.
    Thank you

    Hi All,

    We’re so sorry you had trouble finding the recipes, it looks like there was a schedule change we were not made aware of. Here’s the recipes from that day’s show:

    @ Janet: What else was on that show so we can help track down that recipe?
