Organic Macro Bowl

It isn’t often we demolish an entire bowl of something without once suspecting that it was vegan.

This salad bowl recipe is all about the golden turmeric seasoned quinoa and the glorious assortment of vegetables. There are plenty of crunchy and zippy bits in every bite to keep this salad recipe texturally interesting. Pickled beets add a nice acidic balance and sweetness. Avocado adds a smooth velvety texture and Goji Berry Dressing helps bring all these delicious ingredients together into one magnificent Macro Bowl.
