Quinoa Spinach Bowl
Tonight I wasn’t feeling very well an wanted something super light, yet still highly nutritious. I was glad when I saw my sister post this recipe to her Pinterest board. I’ve been seeing so many delicious recipes there lately!
I’ve been doing a lot of these types of bowls because they are easy…and luckiy my entire family will eat them. 🙂 Eating healthy, whole foods does not have to be difficult!
I started out by making the quinoa (2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa) with a veggie bouillon cube and I added a handful of diced sweet potato to it while it cooked.
When it was done, I opened the lid and put a couple handfuls of fresh spinach in and put the lid back on with the burner off. After it steamed lightly for a few minutes, I put it all in bowls and topped it with herbed goat cheese and avocado.
This could be customized so many ways! I would have added some shitakes if I had them, or maybe some cranberries. You could also leave out the boullion and top it with a yummy light dressing (Martha Stewart does a light vinaigrette in her original recipe).
Have fun with it and then come back and tell me what you did!
