Ground Beef Quinoa Bowl

Oh you guys 😍😍😍 Dinner tonight, softball night πŸ™ƒ Needed to be Fast and made up of ONLY the complete randomness that is available in my empty pantry and fridge 😳 End of Month for me and HUGE shift in Ty’s work schedule, paired with softball games = no time for groceries or cooking πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ so THIS beauty was born 😍….

Ground Beef Quinoa Bowl ❀️ 

You could make it with ANYTHING you have on hand, here is the exact deliciousness I created πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ 

-1 lb ground elk (any ground turkey/beef would do)

  Brown meat with my no sodium taco seasoning 

– 1 bag stir fry veggies (peas, broccoli, carrots and add a diced onion)

  Grilled in dry pan and evoo until perfect

– 1-2 sweet potatoes diced and THIS is the MOST important trick I think I learned tonight! Do you love sweet potatoes or yams? Me to 😍 but when it is hot I hate using my oven to grill them! So here’s what I did and it worked perfect πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

  • – dice 1 or 2 sweet potatoes
  • – throw in a micro safe bowl
  • – toss in 1 tbsp evoo
  • – cover
  • – micro 2 minutes
  • – stir
  • – micro 1 more minute or until softening
  • – dump them into your frying pan and add 1/2 more tbsp more evoo, dash of pink Himalayan sea salt and any other salt free seasoning you like πŸ˜‰
  • – cook over medium high heat, flipping and stirring regularly, until browned and crispy πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ Literally the best and fastest “grilled” sweet potatoes EVER!

– 1 cup organic quinoa

  Bring to a boil in 2 cups water and add 1 tsp “better than boullion” chicken flavor, cover and reduce to simmer for 15 minutes and fluff with fork

– diced tomato

– diced sweet baby peppers

– diced avocado

– diced red onion
Add all the toppings to a bowl and mix up, I added a little salsa too! Sooo yummy and a perfect FAST weeknight meal and you really could use whatever you have on hand 😘
