Foodies and choosey eater unite! This delicious create-your-own grain bowl simplifies the family meal. If the quinoa is made ahead of time (read: leftovers) prep is just a bit of quick chopping.
Assemble all the ingredients separately, even the dressing (which makes a fun dip for the kiddos). Start with a base of quinoa, and then add any or all of the other mix-ins to match your appetite. While the more mature palate will appreciate how well bitter radicchio plays with ripe peaches and creamy avocado, younger eaters are free to stick with familiar fruit and nuts. There’s no wrong way to do it.
Family dinner solved.
Create-your-own meals allow everyone to pile on their faves, so amounts are approximate.
