Easy Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl

For the 4 people that still read this blog, hello! How are u? August ended, what a relief.  The world is going to hell in a handbasket and work sh!t finally hit the fan closer to home – I’m spent.  Fine, but spent.  So I give you this easy lunch/dinner bowl that doesn’t require much thought or preparation.  What’s not to love?

Easy Mediterranean Quinoa BowlHere’s a bowl of quinoa with homegrown tomatoes, farmer’s market zucchini and local Italian sausage.  My bowl also comes complete with the world’s most expensive out of season asparagus.  Feel free to skip it.  I just really craved it 😛  Top with some shaved Parmesan, torn basil leaves and a squeeze of lemon. It’s what we eat on the deck in the sun while we discuss the latest dirt and say goodbye to the summer.

  1. Hi Aleks,
    This dish is such a wonderful bowl of healthy deliciousness! I`m thrilled to find your blog although I understand why you won`t be posting for awhile. Been there, done that! lol
    I have a home in Sidney and I used to work on Salt Spring Island 3 days a week so I`m very familiar with your beautiful island. I take my boat over to have lunch at Moby`s Pub and shop around Ganges a little.
    Currently I`m in Ontario but longing to get back home!
    I`ll look forward to your future cooking endeavours – it appears we have the same passion and taste in food 🙂
    Good luck in your house building! I followed on FB and Pinterest.
