Summer Sunshine Bowls

Good morning! The last few days have been extremely busy, and I can’t imagine anything else but an Epsom salt and lavender bath with a candle tonight! This week has been filled with travel, presentations and a family emergency thrown in that literally sucked the life out of me! If you saw my post from Monday, then you know how thrown off my weekend AND nutrition were. One morning that I was on track, though, was Sunday  — right after I received my big ol’ CSA basket. This recipe was so delish that I dubbed it the Summer Sunshine Bowl.  It brightened up my cloudy week, and I’m sure it will do the same for yours!

Instructions
Prepping the Bowl
  1. Rinse quinoa thoroughly with a fine-meshed sieve.
  2. In a dutch oven or large saucepan, heat 1 tsp of olive oil and toast quinoa for a minute or so --until you smell a nutty, toasty aroma.
  3. Add vegetable or bone broth and bring to a boil, then reduce and simmer on low for 15 minutes until the quinoa absorbs the liquid. When it has, fluff it up a bit with a fork.
  4. In a saute pan, heat up olive oil, and saute garlic until aromatic (about a minute). Add chickpeas, cauliflower and seasonings. Saute until cauliflower is crunchy but not cooked through.
  5. Add the quinoa and cilantro to the pan.
Setting up the Bowl
  1. First layer: baby kale or any fresh greens you have on hand.
  2. Second layer: Quinoa mixture
  3. Toppings: baby tomatoes and a farm fresh egg -- sunny side up for me! 🙂

    • Thanks Stefanie! Definitely try this then! Quinoa bowls don’t normally add greens, but why not? And I ALWAYS find a reason for a runny farm egg if I have them available 🙂
