I'm leeeaving on a jet plane, I don't know when I'll be back again...
Okay, not really. But. I am leaving on a jet plane this coming Sunday for nice little vacation. But... before all of that - I've got to get through the week of chaos that is in full swing. We're talking shopping, packing, laundry, lists, chores, instructions, and so on.
As excited as I am, and as much as I have to do, I thought I would keep this week pretty simple with some rather minimal recipes. I don't want to have a bunch of leftover madness going on in my fridge while I'm away. So! That's where this super simple Greek Quinoa Bowl comes in.
This bowl is just that too. It's stupid simple. One of the most simple. The bowl itself is made with only five ingredients, and the homemade dressing (which is one of my all time favorites) is made with just three. So, all together, we're looking at right at 10 ingredients or less.
Not bad at all! Considering the HUGE punch of flavor that you'll get with every bite full of this bowl. One of the best parts about it, besides the simplicity, is that it's gluten-free and vegetarian! Making it perfect for 'meatless Monday' meals.
If you're looking for a meal worth prepping, then this is perfect for that too! If you are going to prep this instead of serving right away, be sure to spare the avocado and dressing, only adding those in right before you're about to eat it.
And really, I can't say enough about this simple and easy to make dressing. It's a staple that I use often in my kitchen!
