So here we are, with this amazing Bison & Quinoa Power Bowl recipe that will leave your tastebuds flexin’. Lots of protein to build up those muscles and crazy flavors that will make you want to eat all in one day! (I literally have it for two meals every time I make it.)

Let me know what you think!!

Bison Quinoa Power Bowl

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup brown rice

  • olive oil
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • 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, www.thegingermarieblog.com!
