Quinoa Bowl

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as roasted veggies. Ok there is…like cake or cupcakes or pie…but we’re adults here…so…yeah, roasted veggies.

I was inspired to do this for two reasons:

  1. I had an amazing quinoa bowl from I love my gff
  2. I had a lot of random veggies in the fridge

Ingredients:

  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped
  • 5 carrots, chopped
  • edamame
  • Quinoa, cooked in water OR chicken broth
  • 7-8 oz of Halloumi cheese, sliced (This cheese is pretty salty so be conscious of how much salt you use.)
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • any other seasoning you feel like
  • lemon
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced

Directions

  1. Set oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Toss veggies in olive oil, salt, pepper, and any other random seasoning you like. Take any vegetable that’s great roasted, so don’t let my list limit you. I think broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale, anything would be awesome.
  3. Put vegetables on a bake sheet as spread out as possible. You want the vegetables to roast, not steam each other.
  4. Cook for 30 minutes then flip, then cook for another 30 minutes. I like a bit of a char on the veggies so I’ll turn on the broiler and let that sit for 5 minutes before taking it out.
  5. Grill or pan-fry the halloumi.
  6. Then put your bowl together, mine isn’t super pretty, but quinoa down, then pile on the veggies on top with the halloumi.
  7. Squeeze lemon over the dish, or a dressing. I have a dressing that I made that is awesome over this. I’ll have to post a recipe for that later.

Note: I also added chicken, but it isn’t necessary, this bowl is amazingly filling!

    1. Yeah! My husband I were doing this for dinner almost every night over the past two weeks, mainly because it’s so simple and quick!

      I make a ton of quinoa and then the only thing I need to do is do something with the vegetables.
