Bison Quinoa Power Bowl


  • 1 lb bison
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp chipotle chili powder

  1. Cook bison thoroughly, then season with cumin, pepper, chipotle chili powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Meanwhile, chop the veggies and sauté them with olive oil. You can also cook your quinoa at this point, by bringing 1 cup of quinoa with 2 cups of water to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Add your vegetables, kidney beans, and brown rice to the bison. Let that cook for about 5 minutes then add the quinoa! Taste it to make sure you have the desired amount of seasoning, and you're done! A quick, tasty recipe that is perfect for #mealprep for the week. Find out ways to dress this recipe up on my blog,!

  4. What an interesting combination of textures and flavors! I’ve never cooked with bison before – is it a really flavorful meat?

  5. I too am a fan of the Snap Kitchen dish, but they’ve raised their prices and $9.00 for a small version of this seems high to me. Your recipe is almost spot on to theirs. Your recipe is a little spicier, but I like that. Some people might want to cut back a little on the cumin if thy’re not spice lovers. I also added a little low fat cheddar to the final serviing. Also love that your recipe makes about 5 SK size portions, so perfect for my weekday lunches. Thank you so much Ginger!

    1. Thabks so much Jen! I’m glad that you like the recipe! As you stated, Snap Kitchen is yummy but a bit pricey! Thanks so much again and I hope to get more yummy recipes posted soon!
