Meatball Quinoa Bowl

Even though most of us work from home nowadays, we all need an easy, hands-off recipe every once and a while, and this meatball quinoa bowl is the perfect option. With only 10 minutes of prep time, this recipe is truly a breeze.

This bowl has really simple ingredients — mix greens, quinoa, sweet potato, brussel sprouts, and Rao’s Meatballs! Rao’s Meatballs are in the frozen section at Sprouts. Sometimes after a busy day, it is a relief to look in the freezer and find a high quality protein option that is so easy to prepare. Rao’s Meatballs are extremely simple to prepare. Throw them in the oven and you’re done. I love that Sprouts has so many incredible freezer options, like Rao’s, that are healthy and delicious. Plus this month is National Frozen Foods Month! So if you like celebrating random food holidays like I do, then this dish should be at top of your list!

Many of you may know by now, but I am obsessed with roasted sweet potatoes! I think they are so superior and can really spruce up any dish. This bowl is no exception. Also, brussel sprouts have habitually gotten a bad rap, but this is completely undeserving! If you cook brusssel sprouts right, they are absolutely delicious. Let me share my tips for making the best brussel sprouts and roasted sweet potatoes:

  • Use plenty of olive oil. If you don’t have enough olive oil, the veggies will not be able to roast properly and won’t get the delicious crispy edges.
  • Roast at 425. This temperature is high enough that the crispy edges will happen, but the inside will be perfectly soft.
  • Don’t turn the sweet potatoes or brusssel sprouts too much. Leave the sweet potatoes on one side and the brussel sprouts cut side down until they get a decent char.
