  1. This recipe is naturally gluten free.
  2. TO MAKE VEGAN Omit the feta cheese and add more olives for brine. Alternatively, make vegan feta cheese
  3. HOW TO STORE QUINOA BOWL
  4. If you want to prepare this bowl ahead of time, I recommend preparing all the ingredients ahead of time for prep in separate tupperware containers, so that you can just reheat them put the entire bowl together. You can make the bowl a day in advance then eat it, but I wouldn't recommend keeping it together for longer than that.
  5. If you're making this for lunch, just assemble it all together the morning of, or in a mason jar.
