A hearty Kale Caesar Quinoa Bowl that is packed with flavor without all the fat and calories of a normal Caesar dressing.
This quinoa bowl, it’s seriously my favorite thing for lunch lately. Hearty quinoa, crunchy kale, and a creamy homemade Caesar inspired dressing that I am happy to drizzle over almost anything. It makes a delicious vegetarian entree or can be paired up with some roasted chicken, shrimp, or steak. Tofu or chickpeas are also a great addition if you are looking to add some extra protein. Plus since it keeps great in the fridge, you can make up a big batch and have it all week for quick meals.
Also if you love Caesar dressing, this is a great dressing recipe to have on hand. It’s made with reduced calorie mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese. It’s garlicky, peppery, and in my opinion has just the right amount of creaminess from the mayonnaise. A few readers have asked about substituting yogurt for the mayo. While it works, it won’t be as creamy and will be a bit more tart. Sour cream may work better but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. And if you love anchovies in your Caesar dressing, you could definitely add a couple as well.
