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 with the coconut aminos.

3. Then, assemble!  Start with the quinoa…
