Good Wednesday morning everyone!
Today I am excited to share with you one of the most simple yet flavourful recipes that has been a favourite of mine for years. It is full of colours, flavours, and textures… you know they say you first eat with your eyes before your mouth! This quinoa bowl is actually what helped initially bring me to the realization that eating healthy, natural ingredients does not have to mean giving up delicious meals that you look forward to. In fact, the more I eat well, the more I indulge in plant-based, wholesome foods instead of the sugar-filled candy and chocolate I had always craved.
This quinoa bowl is perfect for lunches or dinners as complete meals or sides. It is so versatile so you can swap the ingredients for whatever you have in your fridge, and once prepared it can also be kept refrigerated all week (minus the avocado). This said, my favourite time to eat it is when it is freshly cooked and the quinoa, mushrooms, spinach and crispy shallots are still warm.
