Easy Instant Pot Plant Based Quinoa Burrito Bowls- a nutritious, hearty dish that’s ideal for meal prep!

Easy Instant Pot Plant Based Quinoa Burrito Bowls

After over-indulging this holiday season, I’m ready to get back on track. After weeks of carbs and cookies (Vegan, but still…), I’m excited to get back to plant-based goodness. One of my goals for 2020 is meal prep every week. Meal prep makes eating healthy for the week so much easier! Preparing my meals for the week is made much easier with the help on the Instant Pot. It also makes cleanup a breeze since you’re only using one pot! 

Quinoa and beans are perfect ingredients for meal prep. Quinoa is loaded with protein and fiber. It’s a more nutritious alternative to white rice and it pairs wonderfully with beans.
