EnLIGHTened Shrimp Quinoa Bowl - Gluten-Free Option
Nowadays, quinoa is everywhere. We all know that it's healthy, similar to rice and utterly delicious-but what is quinoa, anyway? If you thought it was a grain, guess again! It's actually a seed, which means it's totally gluten-free. And, when prepared properly, this nutrient-rich superfood makes an excellent foundation for a delicious dinner bowl! The EnLIGHTened Shrimp Quinoa Bowl at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse combines authentic Peruvian quinoa with fresh ingredients and flavor-packed, herb-roasted shrimp.
It starts with our gluten-free blend of Peruvian quinoa and brown rice. To that we add sauteed red onions and spinach, sliced mushrooms, BJ's signature seasoned tomatoes, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a spritz of lemon juice and finish it off with a piping-hot pile of herb-roasted shrimp. This protein-packed entree weighs in at a delicate 550 calories, so it's perfect for lunch or dinner when you're looking for a tasty meal that's low on calories and in saturated fats.
