Directions

Power Bowl: In saucepan, bring 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) water to boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; steep tea for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and discard. Reserve 1/3 cup tea (75 mL) for vinaigrette; set aside. 

Return saucepan to heat; add quinoa and salt. Bring to boil; reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. Divide quinoa among bowls. Top with broccoli, cucumber, avocado, and beet slices.

Herb Vinaigrette: Meanwhile, whisk together reserved tea, oil, lime juice, maple syrup, mint, ginger and salt. Stir in cilantro and parsley; drizzle over power bowls. Top with dollop of yogurt (if using).

Tips: 
• For a vegan-friendly dish, substitute coconut milk yogurt for Greek yogurt.
• Substitute sweet potatoes, cauliflower florets, peas, zucchini and leafy greens for vegetables if desired.
• Add cooked chickpeas for added fibre.
