Delicious & easy weeknight dinner or bring to work lunch.
As an entrepreneur, I’m constantly running around to meetings all over the city. And when there is an hour or two break in between, I typically head to the nearest Le Pain Quotidien to grab lunch or a warm lemon, honey, ginger tea. It’s absolutely my favorite chain cafe, as they have tons of healthy and even organic options. There food is extremely high quality, and you can taste it.
So, this little number here was inspired by one of my fave dishes off the menu, a quinoa tabouli salad. They serve it over a big bed of baby greens with chickpeas and avocado. (If you’re there, order that or the lentil avocado salad, my other fave).
I love making large batches of quinoa dishes, as they save well, and can easily be served cold or reheated throughout the week. You can make this as an easy dinner, or as part of a salad jar to bring to work for the week.
