These Black Bean Quinoa Buddha Bowls are the perfect bowl when you want a quick and easy vegan dinner. A lot of the flavor comes from the Salsa Verde Vinaigrette! It has the perfect amount of spice and tang. Greens, beans and grains makes for the perfect dinner!

Step One: Make the Quinoa & Beans

We are really focusing on simple ingredients for this bowl. We’re talking quick, simple & healthy. For the beans we are literally draining a can of beans and adding them to a sauce pan over low heat. You can feel free to add a little taco seasoning or hot sauce for some heat.

For the quinoa, I like to cook mine with broth. I think it adds a lot of flavor to a somewhat bland grain. Be sure to rinse the dry quinoa before adding it to a sauce pan with the broth. Bring to a boil, cover and lower heat. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or the liquid is absorbed.

Step Two: Make the Salsa Verde Vinaigrette

For the dressing you only need a couple ingredients:

  • salsa verde – homemade or store bought
  • olive oil
  • apple cider vinegar
  • black pepper

Add everything to a bowl and mix to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.

Step Three: Assemble & Serve

To assemble, add quinoa to each bowl and top with black beans, spinach, avocado, red onion and any optional toppings. Top with dressing to taste, serve and enjoy!

Buddha bowls are the easiest meals to customize and make your own. As long as you have a grain, a protein and a green…you’re good to go.

The rest is where you get to be creative. There’s nothing better than getting a ton of flavor with minimal effort. It just makes me so happy inside.
