----and now for the food----
Recently, we took a trip to Minnesota to visit my sister (who has since moved back to Michigan!). While there, we stopped in at this delicious restaurant, Quarks American Bento. All of their ingredients were 100% fresh and real, AND everything was gluten free! I quickly dubbed it as my new favorite restaurant. They really need to bring one to Michigan.
Anyway, so that is what gave me the idea for this recipe. Your first layer is your grain (quinoa, rice, etc.), next is your protein, add next whatever veggies sound good, and then top with a dressing of sorts. So easy, and SO good. Below is my version, but you can easily swap out what ever veggies, grain, protein, and dressing you prefer!
Quinoa and Veggie Bento Bowl
Fresh Broccoli, steamed
Package of shredded coleslaw
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cooked chicken breast, diced
Crumbled Feta, to taste
Ranch dressing (or whatever dressing sounds good)
1) Put quinoa into the bottom of a bowl.
2) Top with diced chicken
3) Top with veggies
4) Add feta and dressing, to your preference.
That's it! Enjoy the protein-packed deliciousness!
