Salmon Quinoa Bowl
Health Highlights


1/4 cup Quinoa, uncooked
1/2 cup Water
1 tbsp Greek yogurt, plain, 2% M.F. (or herb greek yogurt dip)
1/4 cup sliced Tomato
2 tbsp Avocado (diced)
30 gm Salmon, pink, canned (2 tbsp, leftovers)
1/4 cup Sunflower sprouts
1 tbsp Feta cheese


  1. Put the quinoa and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the water is absorbed, the grain is soft, and you can see little yellow rings on the outside edge of the grain (they're germ rings).
  2. Transfer quinoa to a bowl and put it in the freezer to cool - this prevents the warm quinoa from steaming the vegetables.
  3. Once the quinoa is at room temperature, add the Greek yogurt, tomato, avocado, canned salmon, sunflower sprouts, and feta cheese and mix to combine. Enjoy!


No Sunflower Sprouts
