Salmon Quinoa Bowls

As a mom, I've learned that dinner time can be really simple or really difficult. There's truly no in between. For us, we have a really good system and rarely run into issues at dinner time. 

When pregnant, and since 2020, we were getting weekly meal boxes from Everyplate. While we did enjoy it, we grew tired of the recipes after 3 years and wanted to add in some dishes to our rotation that we could have leftovers of and eat several times. Additionally, we wanted to add in more clean ingredients and different protein and grain options. 

Anyway, we are a few months into cooking our own recipes and truly loving it. 

Tonight's meal was one we really, really enjoyed and one we will definitely make again. 
Additionally, if you are in the midst of baby-led weaning, I'll share a picture of J's plate at the end. 

Salmon Quinoa Bowls

- salmon, quinoa (tri-colored), lemon, green beans, avocado, sesame seeds, chili oil

How To Assemble:
[ I baked salmon, seasoned with lemon juice, avocado oil, and dill on sheet pan for 10 minutes at 425 degrees ; added green beans and cooked for 10 more minutes]

Top 1/2 cup quinoa with salmon, green beans, and slices of avocado. Drizzle chili oil [linked here on amazon!] on top of salmon and sprinkle with sesame seeds for added crunch. Serve extra lemon wedges on the side for squeezing on top of salmon.

If you don't like chili oil, sriracha would be another great option!

oh, and for you BLW moms....


You could also serve avocado or quinoa with this meal. We also ended up giving her a strawberry too.
