I love the First Watch Quinoa Power Bowl. I have been working on a Copycat version and this is close! I hope you enjoy it as much I do. Now that I can make it at home I save lots of money too! I like to serve it with a fresh lemon and squeeze over top when I serve. It is protein packed meal that everyone loves! It is a delicious lunch or dinner choice that is light and healthy.
The first watch quinoa bowl is one of my favorites. Now I can enjoy it at home for a fraction of the cost!
