As we head into spring, this recipe is packed with fresh produce and delicious protein, Roasted Sweet Potato & Salmon Quinoa Bowls are a great go-to for lunch or dinner. I’m sharing this recipe in partnership with Pompeian Oils, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Have you picked up on the latest trends in the kitchen? Quinoa Bowls and Buddha Bowls are currently trending in the kitchen and honestly, this a trend I will gladly jump onto. I absolutely LOVE salad bowls such as these, they are not only beautiful but also good for you. This past week, I decided to whip up a Roasted Sweet Potato & Salmon Quinoa Bowl for my husband and I. It was definitely a hit, plus it was packed with good nutrients too.
Now, the key to any bowl is a great dressing to coat that protein packed bowl with, in our case, I decided to make my own Red Wine Vinaigrette using Organic Red Wine Vinegar with the mother from Pompeian Oils. This vinegar is made with harvested grapes from Italy and is a high quality organic vinegar. It also pairs beautifully with the Smooth Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I combined both of these along with a bit of Dijon mustard and garlic to make a delicious vinaigrette. It was light with a fruity aftertaste that comes from the olive oil. I also opted to roast the sweet potatoes in the Smooth Extra Virgin Olive Oil as well. Then, if you mix a little bit with garlic salt it adds a great glaze to the salmon too.
Now, the great thing about these types of bowls, is you can use your garden fresh produce or what you have on hand. I decided to start the bowl with a nice bed of spinach leaves, then I topped it with sliced avocado, roasted sweet potatoes, tomato, quinoa and then a lightly sauteed salmon. The combination was a garden fresh delight, plus it is so good for you too. My husband is fairly picky about his foods, he’s a country boy that likes his comfort food and he was pleasantly surprised when this graced the table. He ended up taking more for lunch the next day too. Now, I’m anxious to make more of these bowls with our produce from our garden too.
