Recipe

Quinoa and vegetable bowls are a staple in my diet and depending on my mood and what's in the fridge, I mix up the flavor combinations. One of my favorite combinations is this Asian inspired quinoa and vegetable dish that makes a great main course or side. During warmer months I like to serve it cold or at room temperature with raw veggies. When its a bit colder, I quickly steam the veggies and serve everything warm.
