mediterranean power bowl

After a week on vacation we all needed some delicious, healthy food even though we enjoyed all the treats that Disneyland and In-and-Out Burger had to offer.  Last night we had Asian bowls.  Tonight, Mediterranean.  This was new for us and it was soooo good!  

mediterranean power bowl (smoky red pepper sauce from Dishing Out Health)
2 packets quinoa/brown rice blend, prepared as directed on package
several chicken breasts, grilled and sliced (they had been marinated in Olive Garden Italian Dressing)
smoky red pepper sauce- see below
cooked spinach
cooked kale
red onion, sliced
cherry tomatoes, quartered
feta cheese
variety of olives
sliced cucumber

Put the ingredients you desire into a bowl and eat it up.

smoky red pepper sauce 
I wanted a sauce that was simple and healthy and found this.  I omitted the oil and it was just fine.

1 (12 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
dash of salt and pepper

I used an immersion blender to blend the ingredients together.
