Mushroom Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl

A bowl of mushroom teriyaki quinoa 

Do you love quinoa? I sure do. It's so easy to cook and light on your body. Quinoa is high is fiber and protein, which is something I look for when grocery shopping. Protein and fiber keep my digestion system working well.  I love how quinoa can be paired with just about anything, sweet or sour and it still tastes amazing! Mushrooms in this recipe, are just so mouthwatering! And besides that, they are good for protecting your hair, skin and nails. And the amount of bell pepper in here, will definitely boost your immunity and improve your vision. Next time you make quinoa, pair it up with this Mushroom Teriyaki recipe.
