Here is my healthy, gluten free recipe for this delicious bowl.  It’s versatile, you can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 🙂

 

1 tbsp. Olive oil or Coconut oil
1 cup precooked quinoa
1/2 cup black beans
4 egg whites
2 tablespoons chopped onion 
1/4 cup chopped tri color sweet peppers
1/4 cup chopped fresh tomato
1/4 cup fresh avocado
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
(optional: 1 lean chicken breast, 2 oz. sliced lean beef or tofu)

Sauce: 1 to 2 tbsp. nonfat Greek Style yogurt
             1/2 tsp. lemon juice
             couple dashes of your favorite hot sauce (I like Tapatio or El Pato)
             Mix well.

Prep:

In a saucepan heat oil, add onion and peppers and heat until onions are soft and opaque.  Add black beans and egg whites scramble until just firm.  Add quinoa and heat through.   Remove from the heat.  Place in your bowl and top with remaining ingredients.
