Recipe: Millet Salsa Bowls!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I’ve made this version of “the bowl” for myself a couple times now and liked it so much that I wanted to share the recipe!  It’s one of those simple, hearty dinners that can be thrown together without a lot of hassle using ingredients you probably already have around the house.  A little millet, some black beans, a few veggies and a splash of salsa and ta-da!  It’s dinner time.  Of course, you can always add whatever garnish you like.  I used nutritional yeast, but vegan sour cream or chunks of avocado would be good, too.

I’m also trying out a new recipe format.  From now on (and in older posts, as time permits), you’ll be able to print QV recipes right from the blog!  Let me know what you think.

    Oh my goodness … this looks so good and … easy! I’ve just recently discovered Millet and it’s tasty (and healthy)! I can’t wait to try out this bowl (and probably will this week). Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂
