SUPER SPICY CURRY QUINOA BOWL
I'm not gonna lie, amigos. While I typically love cooking healthy meals and creating new #SuzEats recipes, every now and then, I just get sick of cooking. Sometimes I'm SO over the chopping, cooking, doing dishes, and just need a dang break from it all! I know you all can relate to that. Most of the time, I find cooking therapeutic, but on the days I don't want to deal with it, thankfully my husband, Matt, steps in or we got out to eat : )
The other day, I was feeling just that so Matt, suggested we make two days worth of roasted veggie quinoa bowl so that we would have leftovers and therefore wouldn't need to cook the next day. Yay! It was music to my ears and it was so nice to have leftovers that I could easily add some herbs and spices to make it taste totally different than the night before!
Btw, are you a fan of the show, Hot Ones? It's one of our favorite shows and inspired the spice in this Super Spicy Quiona Bowl. In Hot Ones, they give celebrity guests 10 hot wings (the scoville level on the hot sauces gets progressively higher as the show continues) and an interview happens while the celeb's mouth is on fire from one hot sauce to the next. Sounds simple, because it is, but it's absolutely hilarious to see some of the celebs start off thinking they're hot shit (pun intended LOL!) and then literally feel like they're dying by the end of it because they can't take the hear.

HERBS, SPICES & EXTRAS
- Coconut oil
- Garlic powder
- Curry powder
- Himalayan salt
- Italian flat leaf parsley (it's more flavorful than the curly parsley)
- Your favorite hot sauce (I love this organic chipotle habañero sauce)
I taste it as I add all the spices and habañero sauce and season it to my liking:
- Heat up about a tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet
- Add some of the leftover quinoa/veggie dish (enough for yourself)
- Sprinkle in all of the spices (the amount of each spice will vary depending on your preference)
- Add some of the habañero sauce (to taste), give it a good toss and enjoy!
If you have one laying around, some diced avocado would be delish and "cool down" the heat if you make this extra spicy like I did. I was looking forward to the spice though, so I heaped on my habañero sauce and devoured this for a late lunch.
