Broccoli Quinoa Bowl

IMG_6298

Ingredients

Makes four bowls

  • 2 cups uncooked quinoa
  • 1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 2 cups peas
  • 2 cups corn
  • 4 scoops hummus of your choice
  • goat cheese, to garnish (optional, leave off for vegan dish)

Directions

  1. Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, steam the broccoli using your favorite method. I bring 1-2″ of water to a boil in a pot, insert my steamer with the broccoli, and cook for about 5 minutes. Be careful not to let the broccoli cook for too long. It can go from a perfect soft crunch to wilty in no time.
  3. When the broccoli is finished, toss it in the lemon juice. Grind the black pepper on top, to taste.
  4. Combine all ingredients (except the cheese) in one large bowl, or assemble individual bowls. Be sure to stir them up well. The hummus makes this a very creamy bowl when it’s well combined.
  5. Scoop some goat cheese on top (makes it even creamier!), or feel free to omit for a vegan meal.
