Vegetable Quinoa Bowl

Eating vegetables doesn't have to be boring! I've been making these veggie bowls for the last few weeks and each time I make them, I use different ingredients. What I love about these bowls is that you can customise them to use up any ingredients you have on hand. The quinoa can be swapped with brown rice or cauliflower rice, and chicken can be added. This meal takes minimal effort to put together, and its packed with protein from the quinoa and beans. This meal can also be served with tacos or burritos.
Other vegetables that can be added are kumara, potato, cauliflower, broccoli, carrot and brussel sprouts.
