This meal actual grew out of a recipe fail. I was trying to make vegetarian quinoa sushi and it just kept falling apart. (Quinoa just isn't as sticky as sushi rice.) It tasted good though so I decided to just give up on the rolling and make a bowl out of the ingredients. And last week, I found myself craving it again.
This is less of a recipe and more of a idea starter. Throw in whatever you would like. I didn't use it last week but, the first time I made this, I simmered portabella mushrooms in veggie stock that were added to it as well. Next time, I want to try this with shrimp or chicken.
SUSHI-INSPIRED QUINOA BOWL
rice wine vinegar
nori, torn into small pieces
Cook the quinoa according to directions and let cool a bit. Add vinegar to taste. Top with avocado, cucumbers, and nori. In a small bowl, mix soy sauce and wasabi to desired taste. Pour over top of veggies and quinoa.
