Quinoa Salad Bowl

header-image-quinoa-buddha-bowl

Hands up if you love a good salad! Forget sad lettuce leaves topped with store bought dressing — I’m talking hearty bowls of mouth-watering veggie goodness! Today I’m sharing this tasty meal which I whipped up for dinner in under 20 minutes, all while wearing my baby in a wrap while she napped. So ya, it’s pretty darn easy to make.

And Bonus: it’s vegan! Which has been so so good for my body in the past. Mid-Pregnancy I started craving cheese like nobodies business, so my vegan-eating ways were temporarily suspended. Since my daughter’s birth, I’ve been rediscovering how amazing I feel when I cut out meat and dairy.

Quick meals like this are making my return to plant-based eating a lot easier. We also receive a bi-monthly delivery of organic vegetables from Fresh City Farms, so we’re never without tasty ingredients! This recipe uses Fresh City Farms grape tomatoes, red radishes, and buckwheat sprouts — Yum. 

The Lemon Tahini Dressing below is by Oh She Glows. I use it all the time, and it never fails to make our salads, buddha bowls, and roasted veggies sing!
