Quinoa Burrito Bowl With Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette
The Greek yogurt adds a little creaminess to the vinaigrette, so I recommend arranging it all pretty in bowl, then smooshing and swirling the whole thing together into a big mess before you eat it.


  • ½ cup dry quinoa
  • ¼ cup green salsa
  • ¾ cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or dried chopped cilantro
  • ½ cup drained and rinsed black beans
  • ½ of an avocado sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chunky pico de gallo salsa
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt

*For chipotle lime vinaigrette*


  • Bring broth and salsa to a boil in a medium pot. Add quinoa, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 12 minutes or according to package directions. 
  • Remove from heat, stir in cilantro, cover and steam for 5 minutes. 
  • Whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl. Spoon the quinoa into the bottom of your serving bowl. Arrange the beans, avocado slices, chunky salsa and nonfat yogurt on top. Pour vinaigrette over everything and enjoy!
