Healthy Quinoa Bowls

These Healthy Quinoa Bowls are quick, easy to make and are topped with the most delicious cumin lime dressing. Perfect for a light vegetarian dinner, colorful side dish or a make-ahead lunch!

These easy Quinoa Bowls start with a base of fluffy quinoa and lettuce, then come alive with the addition of bright fresh veggies, protein-rich egg, creamy avocado and a tangy lime dressing.

I love it as an easy vegetarian meal all on its own, but it also makes a great healthy side dish to serve with grilled meat or seafood!

  • ½ large bell pepper (red, yellow, or orange) (chopped)
  • 1 avocado (sliced or chopped)
  • 3 peeled boiled eggs (soft or hard boiled)
  • ¼ cup red onion (finely diced)
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro (chopped)


  • ½ cup uncooked red quinoa
  • 1 cup water (or vegetable stock)
  • Salt to taste


  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (from about 2-3 limes)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ cup olive oil


  • Cook red quinoa according to package instructions.
  • While the red quinoa cooks make the dressing by whisking the lime juice, honey, salt, cumin, and chili powder. Drizzle in the olive oil and whisk again until well combined.
  • Divide lettuce into three large serving bowls. Top each bowl with 1/3 the quinoa and dressing. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes for the quinoa and lettuce to absorb the dressing. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado, and eggs. Top with the red onion and cilantro, then serve warm or at room temperature.
