Quinoa Veggie Bowl with Southwest Dressing

Since using Classpass, I actually got a free membership to Barre3 online. They have lots of recipes on there so I tried one out! I modified it quite a bit but got the main idea from there. I never realized how much I love quinoa!


Veggie Bowl:
  • 1 cup of quinoa

  • ¼ tsp. salt

  • ¼ red cabbage, very thinly sliced

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ¼ medium red onion, very thinly sliced

  • ¼  cup chopped cilantro, roughly chopped

  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • ¼ cup lime juice

  • 1 ½ tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp.  cumin

  • 1 tsp. mild chili powder

  • ¼ tsp. paprika

  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. raw honey

  • ½ cup olive oil


  1. Cook quinoa according to package.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and toss cabbage, onion and tomatoes to soften (this part is optional, only if you want cooked veggies)
  3. While the quinoa and veggies cook, make the dressing by whisking the lime juice, salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, and honey until well combined. Drizzle in the olive oil and whisk again until well combined.
  4. Add the warm quinoa to a large bowl, then arrange t, cabbage, tomatoes, bell  and red onion.
  5. Pour over the dressing and toss to combine.
  6. Serve & enjoy!
