Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl

A big staple in my family is quinoa. Quinoa has all the essential amino acids that most grains lack, which makes it a superfood! One of the recipes I make regularly is this delicious Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl. Here is a simple recipe you can make in bulk!


  • 1 cup quinoa (chilled)
  • 1 can garbanzo beans drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup of chopped red onions
  •  1 cup grape tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • 1/2 avocado cubed
  • 1/4 cup vinaigrette
  • dash of salt and pepper to taste


Mix all the ingredients together!

Here’s a little tip: I make my quinoa in bulk in the rice cooker.  Same rules apply to quinoa: 2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa.

This makes approximately 4-6 servings
