Vegan Protein Bowl with Quinoa, Lentils and Bruschetta


INGREDIENTS

  1. Cooked Lentils (You can buy the steamed lentils from Trader Joes in the produce section)

  2. Cooked Quinoa

  3. Bruschetta (I buy mine from Trader Joes)

  4. Italian Seasoning (Oregano, Basil and Parsley)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cook Quinoa: Use 1 part quinoa to 2 parts liquid. This means for every 1 cup of quinoa, you will use 2 cups of water. Throw your quinoa and liquid into a pot over medium heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes covered. Once the quinoa is fluffy, you have yourself cooked quinoa!

  2. Combine cooked quinoa, with steamed lentils, and bruschetta. Season with Italian seasoning and s&p.

  3. You can enjoy this either hot or cold. I will usually make myself a large batch and just keep in it the fridge for the week!

BENEFITS

  • Quinoa: Quinoa is a high protein SEED (not grain), similar to the texture of rice or couscous. It can assist in alleviating IBS symptoms to ease the stomach of abdominal pain. Also it provides a great source of protein, keeping you full for hours!

  • Lentils: Help in increasing metabolism and develop cells. They lower LDL (which is the cholesterol you want to keep down) by inhibiting absorption of cholesterol from the small intestine.
