Green Goddess Quinoa Bowls, loaded with all kinds of green veggies and one of my favorite sauces of all times, will quickly become your new go-to lunch!
I mean, I win sister of the year award this year. Calling it now. Earlier this week we did a big round up on easy take-to-work lunch ideas and now I’m adding another one to the mix in the form of Green Goddess Quinoa Bowls. If you’ve tuned into an insta-live, you know I’m all about roasting veggies on the weekend and using them throughout the week. Last week I was on a Brussels Sprouts and Broccolini kick and also happened to have some green goddess dressing on hand to so I threw it all together over some quinoa and called it a day. Utter perfection. We loved it so much we ended up making it again this week and I can’t get enough. Plus it’s bright green and that just makes me happy.
