The fresh flavours of Greece come together in this quinoa bowl loaded with Mediterranean vegetables and held together with a yogurt mixture containing garlic, lemon, mint, onion, dill, water and salt. To make weeknight meal prep even faster, you can prepare the yogurt mixture and chop the vegetables ahead. Packed with protein, quinoa can also be used to make a vegetarian meal. And, this nutty and fluffy grain makes an excellent alternative to rice. If you prefer to serve it with a meat, it pairs beautifully with shrimp, steak or chicken.
