Quinoa Transformed into Comfort Food
| 1 min read
In the midst of one of the snowiest and coldest winters we have had in Michigan in many years, I can’t stop craving comfort food. Unfortunately, eating my go-to feel-good dishes like macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and fried chicken is not an ideal diet. Making an effort to eat fresher, heartier, and healthier meals every day, I went on the search for a recipe that would please my winter comfort cravings as well as my waistline.
And what I discovered was the amazing whole grain bowl concept. With a base of whole grains like brown rice or quinoa, these dishes provide protein and nutrition while filling you up. I have become obsessed with the fresh ingredients and the flexibility of adding anything you like to the bowl, and here is one of my favorite combinations.
