I love this term “quinoa bowl”. It just sounds so… cozy. Like we should nestle right in and rest our heads on pillows of soft, fluffy quinoa and take a little nap.
Or just eat it. That’s fine too.
Over the holidays I tried my hand at Sweet Potato Kale Quinoa Cakes to take to a New Years Eve dinner party, but they were sort of a flop. They tasted great, but they didn’t hold together very well. Still, even though the quinoa cakes were a fail, the ingredients were a win and I was left wanting to make it as a dinner side – more specifically, a “quinoa bowl” that I’ve seen around the interwebs and have been excited to
steal try. A quinoa bowl is comfort food with benefits – warm and carby, but some nutritional perks you don’t get with rice or pasta.
