Every autumn I crave hearty bowls of fresh foods, this lead me to making my Harvest Quinoa Bowls. These Harvest Quinoa bowls are packed with autumn flavors and veggies while also filling up with with healthy fall options. If we don’t have all the ingredients to make these bowls, we always keep some of the tahini dressing on hand to add to salads or chicken, sometimes we use it as a dip for veggies and pretzels. Check out the recipe below! —marvelous munch
