Mediterranean Quinoa and Cauliflower Bowls

Being a vegetarian, I am sometimes pressed to find filling and fuelling meals that aren’t the traditional salmon & veggies I make so dinner oh so regularly. Being a Sunday night, I had lots of meal prep time, and we got creative. This makes large servings, the two of us eating this had massive pasta-sized bowls filled, and had leftovers for days. The thing I love best about this dish are all the summer flavours. I am in LOVE with olives, hummus, garlic, and cauliflower.

Mango Quinoa Salad

It’s time to officially learn the proper pronunciation of our favorite grain / protein. Say it with us now, “keen-wah”, “keeeeen-wah”. No more excuses you “quin-oah” lovers! This is a great vegetarian salad that still packs a protein punch, thanks to the quinoa. You can add whatever fruits / veggies your heart desires to the salsa like topping to make it your own. We used mango and tomatoes, and then topped it with some thinly sliced avocado, red onion, and a lemon ginger vinaigrette. Mix in your favorite greens and you’ve got yourself a healthy lunch!
