When in doubt, definitely put an egg on it. As you would for these filling grain bowls, which are perfect to make for a substantial lunch or dinner. They're chock-full of broccoli florets, aforementioned eggs, carrots, scallions, and wheat berries. Wheat berries are a wonderful, but underused grain, that’s a little like brown rice with a texture more similar to barley. The dressing that flavors them features a mixture of rice vinegar, soy sauce, both sesame and vegetable oil, and a touch of ginger and honey. Add a dash of Sriracha as the finishing touch if you want to up the heat a little bit.
