Not every bowl that sings of nutrition needs to compromise on flavor, and folks, let’s chat about the ultimate powerhouse of plant-based goodness – the Vegan Turmeric Quinoa Power Bowl. It’s a vibrant and nutritious feast, packed with turmeric-infused quinoa, mixed veggies, and topped with a zesty, tangy dressing. It offers a riot of colors and flavors, indicating the overall joy and health your body experiences when you enjoy this hearty meal.

Ingredients List

Here are the star ingredients we need to create Magic with a capital ‘M’ in the kitchen:

  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup of canned chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • Salt to taste
  • For the dressing: 2 tbsp olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, 1 garlic clove (minced), salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions

1. Start by cooking the quinoa. Rinse it thoroughly under running water and then allow it to simmer in two cups of water for about 15 minutes until fluffy. It’s the canvas upon which we’ll paint our vibrant palette.
2. As your quinoa begins to bloom, add the peppery pinch of turmeric and some salt to taste, giving it a good stir so that our primary flavor vehicle is infused with the comforting warmth of turmeric.
3. After the quinoa has cooked and absorbed all the water, let it cool. In the meantime, let’s color our canvas with the robust veggies, adding in the avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, and chickpeas.
4. Lastly, rustle up the zesty dressing by whisking together olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour over your vibrant veggie and quinoa ensemble, and you’ve got yourself a feast that’s both a treat to the eyes and the stomach.
