Quinoa Broccoli Bowl
This quinoa broccoli bowl is tasty and delicious.
Quinoa is one of my favorite when it comes to plant based protein. This quinoa bowl mixed with broccoli and crunchy garbanzo beans is a great combination of tasty, healthy flavors. If you are looking for meatless meals to try, quinoa and broccoli is a good option.
For the quinoa ingredient, I chose Ancient Harvest Grain (Harmony Blend), it’s a combination of organic white, red & black quinoa. Quinoa is a good source of protein, iron, manganese, just to name a few.
I enjoy making this delicious quinoa veggie bowl especially when broccoli is in season. Broccoli is a super food known for its Vitamin C, K, fiber just to name a few.
This quinoa with broccoli is a simple go to dish you can make any time. You can also make a large batch of this salad and place in small containers and store in the fridge. Whenever you’re craving a healthy dish at anytime, you can just take a good bite of this tasty dish.
