Healthy Quinoa Vegetable Bowls (Gf,V)


  • 1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable bouillon
  • 1-2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 2 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce or tamari
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of avocado oil (or other oil)
  • Cilantro and/or sesame seeds for garnish (optional)


In a medium pot, bring your water to boil along with your bouillon. Stir it to dissolve your bouillon, and then stir in the quinoa. Reduce to medium-low heat and cook, stirring occasionally until the water is gone and the quinoa is soft. If the quinoa is uncooked and the water is gone, add a little more water.

Add your shallots and cook until slightly brown. Add your spinach and cook, stirring with a spatula, until everything is cooked.

Steam your carrots until you can stick a fork through them.

Combine your carrots, spinach/onions, and quinoa in a large bowl. Add salt, pepper, and garnish.
