QUICK & EASY WEEK NIGHT DINNER - Greek Quinoa Bowl
This meal kept getting pushed out of the rotation every week, I just was not excited about it. I thought it was going to be bland and boring. I finally bit the bullet and forced myself to make it. I was so pleasantly surprise. Never underestimate simple ingredients creating delicious combinations.
QUICK & EASY Greek Quinoa Bowl
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED: shrimp, quinoa (this is what I used), 1 bundle of asparagus, 1 container cherry tomatoes, 2-3 cloves garlic, Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning, half a lemon juiced, olive oil, salt + pepper
WHY THIS WORKS DURING THE WEEK: This recipe would really work with any protein option, even tofu. Using the microwave quinoa packs from Central Market significantly cut down on time, this recipe only took about 15 minutes.
