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
Canned pumpkin puree
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
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.
