Buddah Belly Bowl

This is a GREAT recipe! Just a few simple steps and you have a savory, belly filling dish! Its also really colourful and fun to eat so kids will like it more than just a plate of mircowaved veggies.

1 cup of Quinoa
2 cups of water
Pinch of salt
Handful of fav veggies
Sesame oil
3 oz of boiled or pan seared tofu
...or 3 oz of black beans

To cook the quinoa boil the 2 cups of water, add salt that add Quinoa. Bing to boil again before reducing heat and simmering, covered for 20 minutes.

While quinoa is cooking cut up veggies and steam them. Biol or sear your tofu until it has the desired firmness.

When all of it is cooked add your grain first to a bowl. Place veggies on one side and the tofu or black beans next to it. Serve with warmed seseam oil for dipping.

Health note: By eating the grains with the veggies you are able to absorb all of the vitimines in both the veggies and the grain!
