Quinoa Bowl with Broccoli Sauce and Roasted Veg
Quinoa bowls are part of my daily regime. I always have a big container of cooked quinoa in the fridge, and all I have to do is get the vegetables and sauce prepared and put it all together. It’s a great way to incorporate raw and cooked vegetables, legumes or plant based protein, nuts, and even seeds, in a healthy and delicious way. The key is making a great and quick sauce for the quinoa bowl. You can also look under my sauces and pestos category and choose a sauce from any of the recipes there. It’s easy to put them together and make them colorful and exciting. This one has a creamy sunflower seed-broccoli sauce that is nutritious, filling, and warming.
Quinoa has the highest protein content of all the grains. They come in white, red, and black and make a complete protein, containing all of the essential nine amino acids needed to support growth and repair tissue and organs. One cup of quinoa has a little over 8 grams of protein, 20 grams of carbohydrates, and 5 grams of fiber, and is high in essential minerals such as folate, iron, and zinc. Once a staple in grain South America, quinoa is now reaching it’s way around the globe as a delicious superfood.
