This Simple Quinoa Apple Power Bowl combines the three macronutrients, favorite fall flavors, and a ton of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants to keep you full and energized for a long time into the future.
Prepare the quinoa by boiling 2 cups of water then adding the rinsed quinoa, covering, and simmering for 13-15 minutes until the water is absorbed. Set aside to cool. In a mason jar or salad dressing shaker, add olive oil, vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, salt and pepper and whisk or shake thoroughly to combine. Assemble simple quinoa apple power bowl by filling two bowls with 1 cup of greens each, then topping each with 1/2 the cubed tofu and 1/2 cup each of quinoa. Add chopped apple on top and around the periphery of the bowl. Drizzle power bowl with dressing and serve immediately or pack for lunch the next day.
Feel free to replace apple with pear or tangerine slices. There may be quinoa or dressing left over which can be perfect meal prep for other dishes.
