Recipe: Grains Zucchini Bowl

Today I want to share one of my go-to summer recipes (besides the "Cool Cucumber Soup"): A "Grains Zucchini Bowl"!
I love the Minute® Brown Red Wild Quinoa Multi-Grain Medley! It only takes about 30 mins to prep it, and it tastes delicious warm or cold. It's quick, fresh, healthy & vegan/vegetarian.


If I feel like having some more protein with it, I grill some fish, or half an avocado with an egg inside. Sure, chicken breast works, too. The bowl can easily be your main dish, but it works great as a side dish.

Find the printable recipe below, and don't forget to Pin & share.

Guten Appetit! :)
