meatless monday recipe: mediterranean quinoa bowl…

image from the sprouted kitchen

have you met my good friend, quinoa? he may look like an innocent little grain, but he is actually a seed that is a complete protein packed with all 9 essential amino acids, magnesium and iron.

luckily, here in l.a., the days have been a bit warmer and this mediterranean quinoa bowl from one of my favorite food blogs, the sprouted kitchen, will hit the spot for supper tomorrow and lunch on tuesday.

sara’s site is beautifully shot with easy to follow directions. i’m thinking about adding kalamata olives to this, but i will wait and see how it comes by following her recipe – she’s hasn’t disappointed me yet!
