35 BEST quinoa bowls

I know, I know. Like you haven't had enough quinoa bowls in your life lately.

But here's the thing: quinoa bowls are probably one of the most versatile and easy meals to make, which is why I love sharing them with you. You can really throw in whatever ingredients you have on hand, add a sauce and some quinoa and you'll have a nutritious (and delicious) meal on your hands. Plus, they can also be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch OR dinner.

As I was brainstorming new recipes, I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration. That's when I realized how many quinoa bowls are out there; I mean there are hundreds of combinations that people have come up with. There's a bowl for every type of palette.

And so today I'm bringing you the absolute 35 best quinoa bowls I could find. Time to grab a fork and dig in!

  2. It would be so nice to go to a recipe site and just have recipes without pop ups, ads, and an entire narrative. It takes so long for all the crap to load that I just give up most of the time. I still don’t see a single actual recipe and am at the bottom of the page.

    • This post doesn’t have the actual recipes, Noah. This is just a round-up post where you have to click to get to the other ones 🙂 And I get that ads can be annoying sometimes, but I’d recommend installing an adblocker if that bothers you. This is my full-time job and that’s one of the ways that I am able to support myself, so by coming to the site every person is helping me be able to continue to create free content. Hope that makes sense!

  3. Wow… Each bowl is so well though of and inspiring… I will try all the veggie portions soon.. some of the options suggested are really unique and never heard of… Thanks for sharing.

  4. I fell in love with quinoa after having at a place called the tiny turtle in cocoa beach, fl. I am interested in making some of these but if u can figure out how they make theirs I would be so happy. Can’t wait to try one of these for dinner tomorrow.

  5. […] Currently eating:-Quinoa bowls Guys, guys, have you tried a quinoa bowl?  It is basically  a heather version of a chipotle bowl.  You can add whatever you’d like and give it tons of flavor.  My favorite combo?  Avocado, kale, cilantro, salsa, and lime juice.  Super fresh and healthy.  Check out a ton of combination ideas here.
