Quinoa veggie bowl with summer peaches

vegan macro bowl

I love adding a handful of fruit to my salads and grain bowls.  There's just something about the sweet and savoury flavour contrast that tickles my taste buds.  Today's quinoa bowl is packed with kale massaged in balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil, baked sweet potatoes, white quinoa, grilled asparagus and raw radish in lemon juice topped with slices of sweet summer peaches (I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but I like my peaches crunchy!).  I hope you enjoy today's recipe!
