So here’s my go-to clean eating meal before the big day: a bowl of Asian-style quinoa dressed in a sweet and tangy sesame vinaigrette loaded with all sorts of veggie goodness – shredded cabbage, avocado, bell pepper, carrots, corn and green onion – but feel free to add in your favorite kinds of veggies. If you need more protein, you can also add in tofu or shredded chicken breast. And you can’t forget about those crispy noodles for that added crunch. I cheat a little bit and always add a little extra in my bowl!
1.To make the vinaigrette, whisk together rice wine vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, sugar, ginger and soy sauce in a small bowl; set aside.
2.In a medium saucepan, cook quinoa according to package instructions.
3.In a large bowl, combine quinoa, cabbage, bell pepper, carrots, corn, green onion and avocado. Stir in sesame vinaigrette.
4.Serve immediately, topped with chow mein noodles, if desired.
