Meatless Monday: Quinoa Fiesta Bowl!


Quinoa Fiesta BowlThe last few week I have been so busy that if my post title wasn’t “Meatless Monday” I am not sure I would even know what day it is.  That being said, I refuse to sacrifice nutrition even if I am too busy to remember to brush my teeth- don’t judge, it happens!   

Anyway, I made this delicious Mexican inspired quinoa dish for lunch last week but it would be perfect for dinner as well.  I love subbing in quinoa any where I can for extra protein and nutrition plus this festive bowl is topped with avocado so that makes it automatically amazing, duh. I left out any cheese in order to keep it vegan friendly but if you are a dairy lover, then cheese be with you.

Here are a few pictures so you can feast your eyes on this gorgeously green avocado.Quinoa Fiesta BowlQuinoa Fiesta BowlIsn’t it pretty? It is especially tasty when paired with the spicy chili seasoning and citrus lime flavors of the rest of the dish.  Some serious yum in a bowl, my friends :)
