Not Boring Quinoa Bowls
This healthy and nutritious quinoa bowl has made it onto our repeat list. We love how quick and easy it is to make, and I can’t get enough of that lemon tahini dressing! Here are a few tricks for making the best quinoa bowls at home:
Start with fluffy quinoa! Follow our quick recipe for cooking quinoa at home. With our recipe, you are guaranteed to have fluffy quinoa ready for this bowl. Bonus, it lasts a good while in the fridge (6 to 7 days).
Toss the quinoa with a bit of dressing before adding it to the bowl. I find plain quinoa bland and a little bitter. That’s why I always toss it with a flavorful sauce. In this case, before building my bowls, I toss the quinoa with some of the lemon tahini dressing. I still drizzle more on top of the bowl, but I make sure that my quinoa is well seasoned first.
Use a variety of colors and textures. You can see from our photos that we are combining a variety of textures. Quinoa is soft, so make sure that you add some crunch. In our photos, we achieve crunch from cucumbers and nuts. I also love adding something creamy. In these bowls, we have a creamy dressing and some feta cheese. If you want to keep these vegan, leave out the cheese, but try some cubes of tofu instead.
Try this: Here’s our baked tofu recipe. It’s crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside. It would be perfect for adding to these quinoa bowls!
Use a flavorful dressing. I am biased when it comes to the salad dressing. I love this lemon garlic tahini dressing. It’s sitting in my fridge right now. It’s dairy-free, creamy, and tastes fantastic. Here are some more options that would be delightful:
