Method of Prep:
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
There will be two sides to this Harvest Bounty Bowl, so you can prepare the raw portion after the other vegetables are cooking in the oven. After you’ve cut the collard greens in ribbons, toss them in the 1 tsp. of olive oil and salt. Set aside. This will help take any bitterness out of the greens.
In a shallow baking pan,lined with tin foil, lay in the carrots, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, butternut squash, turnips, red onion, golden beets, and garlic. Toss the vegetables in the 1/4 cup of olive oil. Then sprinkle with the fresh thyme, parsley and drizzle the lemon juice on top. Lastly salt & pepper to taste. Cover with tin foil and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Remove the tin foil and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes.
Remove baking pan from the oven.
In a large bowl, lay the ribboned collard greens on one side in the bottom. Add the Daikon radish, avocado, scallions and Asian pear on top.
Next to the raw portion, add in the pearled barley.
And finally add in the cooked vegetables.
Salt & pepper to taste.
