Asian Quinoa Bowl

This weekend, we had a bbq with some friends and made Trevor’s Famous Coleslaw. The only problem is there’s leftover cabbage afterwards and I never know what to make with it (aside from stuffed cabbage). But, I figured out a solution – I’ll make a quick bowl with it and use up my leftover quinoa I made for the girls at the same time. YES! Winner of an idea! It’s the perfect dish for  Meatless Monday!

All I did was saute up the veg in some sesame oil, mix in the quinoa and soy sauce and dinner was made. It’s delicious. It’s easy. It’s super healthy. And you have to make this!
