Green Quinoa Bowl

green quinoa bowl

Not really a recipe. More like leftovers made right. I’m calling this my Leftover Quinoa Lunch Bowl.

It all starts with a bed of quinoa.  Followed by some toasted walnuts.  Topped with whatever fresh veg I have around and then tossed with either pesto or scallion sauce - whichever I have handy.

Sooooooo super satisfying, especially in the summer heat. 

  • Prep Time

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup cooked quinoa (any color)
  • 2 tablespoons spinach pesto (leftover from pesto pasta salmon dinner)

  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup raw or cooked veggies (chopped small (cauliflower, broccoli, cucumber, tomatoes, scallions)
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts (toasted, about 2 walnuts crumbled)

Preparation

Combine cooked quinoa with pesto and mix to coat quinoa well. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Divide quinoa among bowls. Top with veggies and walnuts.
