SO, LET’S EAT THIS QUINOA BOWL RECIPE…LIKE NOW!
Quinoa bowl recipes are awesome because they are generally super quick and easy to make. They are versatile enough to allow you to add pretty much whatever you love to your bowl. This one has artichoke hearts in it, hence the name quinoa artichoke salad….but I am still calling it a bowl! Haha. Quinoa is the perfect food, high in protein and fiber, thus super filling and healthy. So this dish will keep you satisfied for quite some time.
