If you're looking for a quick, healthy, relaxing dinner, these quinoa bowls are perfect! Quinoa is high in protein, containing all the essential amino acids, plus is very high in magnesium, potassium, zinc, (for women) iron. One cup quinoa provides a good amount of magnesium, which studies show can help control your body’s stress-response system, and hormones that elevate or diminish stress! Bring it on!
In a medium saucepan, combine the well-rinsed quinoa and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes 15 Minutes, then let stand covered for 10 minutes 10 Minutesoff the heat. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the kale, carrots, celery, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, oil and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, black pepper to taste. With clean hands, toss ingredients together until very well coated in the lemon and oil, massage well.
In a mason jar or medium mixing bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing until smooth. Add more water as necessary to make the sauce drizzle-friendly. Drizzle over quinoa, mix well and enjoy!
