This robust Gyro Quinoa Bowl is a satisfying meal that is a perfect way to mix up your weeknight meal plan. With warm lamb, salty feta and a deliciously creamy Tzatziki Sauce, this is a healthy quinoa bowl that your family will ask for time and again.
There are few things that I love more than a gyro.
On more than one occasion, I've been seduced off the gluten free bandwagon by a gyro.
I know, I know. It is a terrible thing to do to myself. More often than not, I pay for it for days.
This dish was a huge hit at our house. In fact, I've already got it on the menu for next week. Who knew?
