Berry Quinoa Power Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

I love the power bowl trend: you just start with a whole grain and layer in nutrient-rich toppings and you’ve got a flavorful meal in one. This recipe for Berry Quinoa Power Bowl was inspired by a trip to my farmers market, which revealed the first fresh berries of the season. So, naturally, I had to pair those fresh berries with hearty, protein-rich rainbow quinoa, along with chia seeds and walnuts, in this easy plant-based power bowl. You can whip up this completely vegan, gluten-free bowl in minutes—even quicker if you use leftover quinoa you cooked the day before. Enjoy it for breakfast, or try packing it up for lunch or meal prep for the week. With only 8 ingredients, you can turn to this healthy recipe any time. You can also vary the fruit based on what’s in season—or turned to frozen fruit in the winter.
