Give me a bowl every night of the week like this and I’d be soooo happy. This coconut quinoa bowl starts with a bright yet decadent coconut quinoa base, then ups the ante with fresh spinach and healthy chickpeas. Top it all with Spicy Red Pepper Tofu Sauce and you’ve got a perfect storm of flavor.
This Coconut Quinoa Bowl is easy to meal prep for the week. If you’re already in the habit of cooking chickpeas for the week – go, you! If you’re not yet in the habit, here’s an easy How-To on Cooking Instant Pot Chickpeas. And what fridge is complete without spinach? Ok, I’m a spinach nerd but seriously, I put it in everything! (Including this Everyday Strawberry Banana Smoothie.)
Spicy Red Pepper Tofu Sauce brings this bowl together and is absolutely packed with flavor. It’s one of my favorites, and I’m not even a spicy food lover. But a bit of sriracha paired with red pepper just explodes with deliciousness. And a handful of cashews blended into the tofu base makes it so amazingly creamy.
