Cozy Quinoa Bowl
Prepping for the holidays? Looking for that perfect (and easy!) chilly weather meal to share with friends? Okay, you will love this recipe!! It's full of cozy flavors, nutrient-dense veggies and grains, and ALMOND BUTTER! Duh. If you haven't realized it by now, all of our recipes on the website use almond butter... I mean, I think that's a given! Plus, it's the most amazing superfood, so it should be on #allthethings! I'm planning on serving this as a side dish for our Thanksgiving side this year... maybe you should give it a try and surprise your family and friends!
