If I had to guess, I would probably say quinoa isn’t your “go-to” grain of choice. And, who could blame you? Quinoa, on its own, can be a little bland and not very exciting.
But, add a few things into the mix and you’ve got a rock concert of flavor, nutrition, and satisfaction! This Quinoa Chipotle Bowl with Southwest Tahini Sauce is super tasty and will forever change the way you look at this ancient little grain.
Quinoa Chipotle Bowl With Southwest Tahini Sauce
This recipe was the result of me just being lazy and throwing whatever I could find into one bowl for the sake of convenience. The results, however, were amazing. Not to mention, I had a pleasantly surprised wife and kids who demanded this concoction become a regular in our weekly meal rotation.
The combination of roasted corn, guacamole, salsa, and tahini dressing absolutely make this dish. The greens and red Napa cabbage not only make this dish look, eh hem…pretty, but add a crisp freshness and include very vital nutrients so don’t exclude them.
Let’s also not forget the time and effort that goes into preparing this tasty little master piece is on the minimal side. Once again…you’re welcome.
I think you’re really going to enjoy this. It’s:
Simple to make
Full of flavor
Loaded with protein
And just plain delicious
This would make a great meal for a dinner party or family gathering. I think it’s something that will satisfy even those who do not adhere to a plant-based diet. You can also switch out the quinoa for another grain of your choice.
