Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/3 cup quinoa blend cooked. I used Tru Roots sprouted rice and quinoa blend. Tip: cook it ahead of time with chicken broth instead of water - it adds amazing flavor.
  • 1 cooked chicken breast sliced
  • 10 spears steamed asparagus
  • 1/2 roasted red pepper
  • 1/4 cup matchstick carrots
  • 2 tbsps honey dijon dressing

For the honey dijon dressing:

Instructions

If you haven't pre-cooked your ingredients:

  • Put 1/2 cup of the quinoa/rice blend into a pot and add 1 cup of chicken broth. Bring it to a boil, cover and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
  • Slice a red pepper in half and roast at 400 for 15 minutes, or until charred.
  • Snap asparagus and place in a microwaveable safe vegetable steamer, microwave for 4 minutes.

For the honey dijon dressing:

  • Combine all ingredients in a jar, put a lid on it and shake. Store in the fridge for up to a week.

Assembly

  • Place the lettuce on the bottom and arrange the ingredients around the bowl, placing the quinoa in the middle. Top with the honey dijon dressing.
  • This recipe is for one bowl, but it's easy to double (the quinoa is enough for 3).
