Easy Summer Quinoa Bowl w/ Bush's® Baked Beans
This post was sponsored by Bush’s® Beans as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
As a busy mom of three little girls, I'm always looking for quick, easy meal ideas that my kids (and husband) will actually eat. With Victoria Day coming up, I wanted something easy and refreshing that I could prepare ahead of time and throw together at the last minute. I decided to create a quinoa bowl full of fresh ingredients that adds protein to their diet to keep them full after running around outside all day!
We love Bush’s® Beans products for their flavour and versatility, plus they're a family-owned company that began over 100 years ago. They have an amazing line of products now available in Canada, we picked ours up at Sobeys. Their Baked Beans come in seven delicious flavours, which means there's one that everyone will like. Our favorites are the Brown Sugar Hickory, Sweet & Tangy and Honey. I decided to use the Brown Sugar Hickory for this recipe, but any flavour will work! They're also low fat, a high source of fibre and gluten-free!
I could honestly just eat Bush’s® Beans on their own, but I wanted to turn bean goodness into meal greatness and elevate an otherwise boring dish. What would you add a can of Bush’s® Baked Beans to? Let me know in the comments!
