These gluten free buffalo quinoa vegetable bowls have just the right amount of spice to add a kick to your vegan meal :-).
These buffalo quinoa vegetable bowls are a healthy and filling bowl with just a hint of spice.
What better way to enjoy a family meal than over a vegan veggie bowl?
I found this delicata squash at our local farmer’s market last weekend and I thought the sweet squash flavors would work perfectly with the buffalo sauce in this bowl.
Did I mention how easy this recipe is? These bowls are special because you can use any vegetables, any grain, and any sauce. Want to add more protein? Toss in some edamame or tofu. (*One thing I like to do is make extra quinoa so that I can make different bowls for lunches during the week.) You can toss in grilled chicken, shrimp, or any other meat if you want more protein.
This healthy veggie bowl is filled with butter lettuce, yellow pepper, red quinoa, delicata squash, zucchini, and broccoli. It is both nutritious and filling. No hungry people allowed :-). Our family eats so much meat that it is nice to have some vegan options that still have a lot of protein.
