I rarely post vegetarian recipes. I know I should do it more because people aren’t as afraid of going meatless as they used to be, but I still get a little nervous. It’s harder to sell healthier recipes on pinterest than a big, fat teriyaki pina colada burger or deep fried apple bombs. Everyone at least wants to look at the junk food even if they aren’t eating it. But, this recipe really turned out so easy and yummy I just had to post it. Stop being scared of meatless meals and quinoa and just give this vegetarian sun dried tomato quinoa bowls recipe a go. I bet you will love it!

We chose to go with a dark red quinoa, but you can use anything you’d like. In fact, if you’re just totally against the whole quinoa thing you could do pasta. It would be equally delicious just not as low carb obviously. In fact, I’m thinking that sounds pretty darn delicious. And I’ll give you our pesto recipe, but to be honest, this is the prepackaged Costco pesto. Yup, they sell sun dried tomato and basil pesto so it’s a time saver for me. Hope you enjoy!

Are Sun Dried Tomatoes Good for You?

Sun dried tomatoes are good for you.

They are packed with nutrients that deliver many health benefits.

Is Quinoa Rice?

Quinoa is not the same as rice.

Quinoa is a protein-packed grain that looks a bit like couscous, that is as versatile as rice, and tastes delicious.

Quinoa can be used instead of rice in most dishes.

Quinoa is also a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium, and fiber.
