Nacho Supreme Quinoa Bowl

This is an incredibly elaborate grain bowl. If you’re not into grains you could swap for salad greens and make a taco salad. The queso sauce MAKES it. It’s awesome.

I used our tried and true cheese sauce from our Ultimate Mac and Cheese recipe from a few posts back. Here’s the recipe again. You could substitute pumpkin for any kind of squash or sweet potato.

Pumpkin Cheese Sauce

Equal parts:

Canned pumpkin puree
Tahini
Nutritional Yeast and
Water or Coconut milk
+ a hefty pinch of sea salt

For the bowl I used about 2 tbsp of each as well as a little bit more water cause I wanted to be able to drizzle it. This would equal about 1 serving I’d say.

But this isn’t what you came here to see!

Presenting the Nacho Supreme Quinoa Bowl:

1/2- 3/4 cup of cooked quinoa
1 tsp chili powder

Chopped red pepper
Chopped green onion
Black beans
Salsa
Diced avocado
1 sprouted corn tortilla (Baked in a 350F oven for about 10 minutes and crumbled)

1 serving of Pumpkin Cheese Sauce (recipe above)

First you layer the quinoa that has been mixed with chili powder on the bottom of the bowl. Next add your veggies, salsa and avocado (Add vegan sour cream if you’re into that kind of thing). Top with tortilla pieces.

Drizzle on cheese sauce and garnish with a lime.

Yum!!!

    This sounds INCREDIBLE–I seriously had this urge to make burritos actually XD corn tortillas are so delicious, and I think burrito bowls are absolutely perfect because they’re so customizeable!

    This looks delicious! I love those tortillas! I like to bake them in the oven to make homemade chips. Will definitely have to try this bowl though. So glad you girls are back to regular blogging! πŸ™‚
