These shrimp quinoa bowls make my soul happy. They are so comforting and full of flavor. I’ve made them for the past few weekends and always look forward to them. Other than waiting for the quinoa to cook this recipe comes together in minutes.
If you are looking for a quick weeknight meal this one is a winner. You can add a variety of veggies, mushrooms would be yummy. My favorite version is the one below. It is simple and I usually have most of the ingredients on hand. Normally, I hate reading Asian recipes because I rarely have all the ingredients. But this one contains simple pantry items most of us have.
Other than the shrimp it is also very budget-friendly. Wild caught shrimp has been on sale the at my local grocery store lately so we have been taking full advantage of that.
This is a small batch recipe and only makes enough for two. I’m usually the only one eating quinoa in my house so I’m thankful for the leftovers the next day. It makes the perfect lunch. If you are serving this for your family I would double the recipe.
