To make a Greek Quinoa Bowl is easy!
Not only is great to throw together for meal prep but the ingredients are so healthy and can be switched up each day.
To keep things even easier and faster- I recommend prepping shredded chicken (or using rotisserie chicken) and cooking quinoa ahead of time.
If you haven't made quinoa in the rice cooker- I HIGHLY recommend it. It is the easiest way to prep quinoa, I use 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water. Turn on the switch and it's done in about 25 minutes.
Once you've made the base for the Greek Quinoa Bowl (chicken and quinoa) ...the rest of the ingredients can be added when you're ready and last in the fridge all week!
Greek Bowl Topping Ideas:
Kalamata Olives, Pepperoncinis, Cucumber slices, Pickled Red Onions, Diced tomato, Tzatziki, Feta, Dill, Red Wine Vinaigrette, Bell Peppers, Pita Wedges, Sundried tomatoes, Arugula or spring mix... The options are endless!
To keep meal prep easy I keep kalamata olives and pepperoncinis (or banana peppers) in the fridge all the time. And lately pickled red onions as well! They are so dang good on everything. I usually use store bought tzatziki for convenience and add right before serving when I meal prep these bowls.
