- First, bring ½ cup of water to a boil with a lid. Add the quinoa and let it boil. Cover the vessel and simmer until liquid is absorbed on medium flame for about 10mins. Remove from heat, cover and let it stand for 15mins.
- While the quinoa cools down, set up the bowls. Cut all the veggies and greens and get the sprouts and black beans ready. The recipe calls out for two bowls hence serve the veggies in halves.
- Now pre-heat a pan on medium flame and cook the ground meat of your choice, stirring continuously until it begins to brown. Stir in the apple cider vinegar, chili powder, garlic, cumin, pepper and sea salt. Cook until ready to eat.
- In one bowl add half the portion of the meat and the quinoa rice and the other half in the other bowl.
Add in a dollop of sour cream in both and sprinkle some fresh cheese and garnish with chopped green onions and cilantro. Season with dried herbs if desired.
