Comfort food has never been healthier and easier. It literally takes less than 20 minutes to put this recipe together and voila! This Salmon Quinoa Buddha bowl has been my go-to “fast food” since I started paying more attention to what I eat for better health. This Salmon Quinoa bowl is packed with healthy protein from both the salmon and the quinoa and is definitely a complete meal with lots of vegetables and complex carbohydrates from the quinoa grain. This recipe is also very forgiving for a novice in the kitchen!
Quinoa is actually not a grain but a pseudo-cereal, a seed that is prepared and consumed like a grain. Regardless of how it is classified, quinoa is very nutritious for you. It contains an excellent amount of dietary fiber and a list of other vitamin and minerals. It has a crunchy texture and slightly nutty flavor and best of all, it is gluten-free! I love quinoa and I have completely substituted my white rice and grain consumption with quinoa. Need I convince you more to try this recipe?
