How to make this Quinoa Veggie Bowl

I would start with quinoa. If you are using the prepacked cooked quinoa then there won’t be any need to cook the quinoa so you will move on to making the homemade hummus.

Once both of those are prepared and ready to go, set up all your other ingredients, the veggies. Cut them all up, assemble into the bowls, then add quinoa, hummus, and Greek yogurt. Add your dressings and herbs and you are ready to eat!

Why is Quinoa Healthy?

Quinoa is plant-based and contains high amounts of essential amino acids. They are rich in fiber, high in protein and naturally gluten-free. Other nutrients found in quinoa are B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium,  vitamin E and many other beneficial antioxidants. Quinoa is much better than rice and a great replacement for rice because they are lower in calories and have 15 times fewer carbohydrates than rice. One cup of quinoa has twice the amount of protein and 5 grams more fiber than rice.
