FD876C0F-9494-494C-AE61-75A3222F249BFor lunch I decided to go with something healthy and easy. Below is the recipe for my southwestern quinoa bowl!

For the bowl:

•1 sweet potato steamed or baked

•1 tbsp cumin

•1 tbsp chili powder

•Salt and pepper to taste

•1/4 cup of black beans

•1/4 cup of corn

•1 cup cooked quinoa

Dressing:

•Half an avocado

•1/4 cup of greek yogurt

•1/4 cup of water

•1 cup of cilantro leaves

•1 clove of garlic

•1/2 tsp salt

•Juice from 1 lime

Recipe:

Before baking or steaming your sweet potatoes make sure to cube them and sprinkle them with the cumin and chili powder.

While sweet potatoes cook. Pulse all dressing items in a food processor until smooth.

Layer bowl starting with quinoa on bottom. Then top with corn, sweet potato and beans. Drizzle with dressing.

Add salmon or chicken for more protein!
