How to Make 5-Ingredient Quinoa Bowls:
1. Prepare quinoa according to package directions. FYI – 2 cups of dry/raw quinoa makes about 6 cups of cooked quinoa when prepared using 4 cups of water or vegetable broth!
2. Once slightly cooled, place the 6 cups of cooked quinoa in a mixing bowl and gently toss together with the coconut aminos.
3. Then, assemble! Start with the quinoa…
Followed by the desired amount of beans and mandarin oranges…
And then finally top with the oh-so glorious chopped avocado! Sprinkle it all with a bit of salt and you’re good to go.
And that’s all there is to it! So tasty and so simple. I hope you love these Quinoa Bowls as much as we do!
Top Tips for Making 5-Ingredient Quinoa Bowls:
- Add some chopped almonds if you’re feeling the need for a little crunch.
- If you’re not eating everything right away, keep your ingredients separate and assemble when you’re ready to eat.
- I find that this recipe works best with quinoa, but if you can’t eat quinoa, feel free to substitute with your grain of choice.
