Quinoa Shrimp Bowl

Quinoa was something I discovered when I was participating in a paleo challenge a couple of years ago. I still love to use it as a grain replacement! We had this delicious shrimp quinoa bowl for dinner:

Ingredients:

1 lb. shrimp

1 cup quinoa

1 avocado

2  bunches of scallions, chopped

1/2 can of black beans

1/2 can of corn

1 medium lime

salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Add 2 cups of water to 1 cup dry quinoa. Bring to a boil and simmer ~ 15 minutes.
  2. Cook shrimp in a skillet while quinoa is cooking. Add spices & lime juice to taste.
  3. When quinoa is done (water is gone), add beans, corn, and scallions to the pot and stir. Also add spices and lime juice to taste.
  4. Spoon quinoa mixture into a bowl, then add 1/2 avocado, and finally shrimp on top!
