Here at Women of Today are all about making your life easier and giving you options...

That’s why we came up with this great vegan recipe for an Asian Quinoa Bowl with Two Dressing Options in the Women of Today Test Kitchen this week.

This recipe is a power-packed bowl and we included two dressing options that are both easy to whip up and taste great with this dish. We love bowls because you can enjoy them fast for an easy on-the-go meal when you’re busy working from home, lounging poolside, or packing up a lunch to go.

WOT we love about this recipe: The bowl base is quinoa which has both protein and fiber, so it fills you up and can make a great and healthy snack! The bowl is then topped with crisp vegetables that pack a ton of nutrition.

This bowl is vegan and so are both of the dressings (as long as you use agave instead of honey). The Miso Ginger Dressing is a great naturally gluten-free option and The Peanut Ginger Dressing can be made gluten-free by using tamari.
