Grilled Veggie Quinoa Bowl

Michelle Alley

TOTAL TIME:45 min

This bowl is filled with vegetables that you can find in abundance in the summer. To bump up the flavor, we marinated the veggies in a Basil Vinaigrette. I like to use the extra marinade as a dressing for this bowl, but it will add extra calories. The marinade is so yummy with the chewy quinoa, creamy cheese, and cherry tomatoes. This is a large bowl, so feel free to eat less by cutting the serving size if half, if desired.

          Directions
          1. Blend all the ingredients for the Basil Vinaigrette until smooth.
          2. Chop veggies and toss with basil vinaigrette in a large bowl.
          3. Let soak for at least 15 minutes.
          4. Take veggies straight from the marinade, then grill in batches until all of the vegetables have been cooked—about 4 minutes on each side or until tender.
          5. Set marinade aside.
          6. Assemble quinoa bowls with 2 cups grilled veggies, 1 cup quinoa, 1 ounce mozzarella, and ½ cup cherry tomatoes.
          7. If you’d like, drizzle extra dressing on top.
          8. *Nutrition analysis done with ¼ of marinade. Adding it as a dressing will increase calories.
