How to make a quinoa bowl for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

September 25, 2015 0 Comments

We love the concept of making a big "bowl" of something. This is code for pretty much tossing together a bunch of ingredients (usually whatever is left in the fridge) into a bowl to create a nourishing and very tasty meal.

There is a little bit of a method to getting it right however.

To save time I always use my "cook once, eat three times" principle where I make enough of something to make three meals out of it.

I love making a big pot of quinoa as it is a great base fore pretty much everything, it's gluten-free and protein-packed, and it's one of the quickest cooking grains to make.

So to make your next "bowl" you'll need :

  1. Solid base - with grains and greens like brown rice, quinoa, spinach, kale, roquette etc
  2. Colourful vegetables - carrot, shredded beets, snow peas, red cabbage, capsicum, blueberries etc
  3. Crunchy toppings and dressings - think herbs, nuts/seeds, and yummy dressings

You can't go wrong with a good pancake for breakfast. Finding a recipe that is healthy and tastes good can be a little tricky however. I've tried almond meal and find it burns too quickly, I've tried coconut flour and it's just that little bit too dry. Buckwheat or even amaranth flour however both hold up under pressure, and with a touch of yoghurt could even pass for the real deal. This recipe is packed with protein, which will keep you fuller for longer, without the bloat. Enjoy! SaveSaveSaveSaveSave
