Quinoa Kale Protein Bowl

Protein Bowl

This quinoa bowl was inspired by BIO RAW, a Toronto based meal delivery service company that is all organic, eco-responsible, B-Corp and just all around delicious and awesome! 

Their facility even runs on wind and solar power! 

Their line of superfood protein bowls includes 7 different vegan, gluten-free and nut-free meals. 

I created my own version of their “THE BUILD” with about 18g of protein and you can enjoy it raw or sauteed.

Ingredients:

Serves 1-2

2-3 large leaves kale, de-stemmed

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1/2 cup beans (I love adzuki or mung because they are very alkalinizing)

1 medium zucchini, spiralized

1/2 yellow pepper, diced

1 medium carrot, peeled and grated

1 green onion

5-6 leaves fresh basil, sliced finely

3 tbsp each sunflower and pumpkin seeds

Dressing:

1/2 tbsp sesame seed oil

4 tbsp olive oil (if you are sauteing use coconut or avocado oil)

3 tbsp coconut aminos or tamari sauce

2-3 tbsp water

1 garlic minced

2″ piece ginger, grated

rind and juice of 1 fresh lemon

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

Directions:

  1.  In a large wok or frying pan, saute garlic and ginger with oils for a few minutes.  Add rest of dressing ingredients and all the vegetables (except the basil)Cannot get other user media.
