This grain bowl is a colorful, fun meal. The pickled blueberries are a wonderful surprise that awakens the palate. You can use any combination of grains, nuts, or fruit, and the secret purée underneath it all. Cauliflower is great. Celery root is awesome. Cauliflower rice can also be a substitute for one or all of the grains.
I'm going to assume that the reason no one has reviewed this one yet is that it looks labor-intensive. It is labor-intensive. But it's worth it. There are so many things to love about this recipe that it takes time to unpack them all.
Individually each bit is delicious and has many potential uses. The dates are sticky and sweet and would make a delicious pair to a creamy cheese like brie or maybe a goat cheese. The celery root puree is, as is suggested by the writer, absolutely heavenly and I think the leftovers will become a soup in their own right. And the pickled blueberries are a nice surprise that I think I will use in other salads as well.
Put together the individual parts lose a little bit of their individual specialness but when dressed with the vinaigrette the whole is just as delicious as the parts, in a different way than expected. I recommend making this - or at least some of the parts. Especially the celery root puree (note: I did it with macadamia mile and chicken broth because that's what I had but I don't think those substitutions are responsible for the deliciousness).
