Quinoa bowls aren't just about feeling good and being good; they have to taste good. Otherwise, you've got yourself a bowl you won't eat and you'll be heading for the potato chips to fill you up. Here, we're giving you health and a cornucopia of flavors: the warm heat of curry, the slightly sweet of coconut, the brightness of lime, and, well, peanuts. (We're going to assume you know what they taste like.) Pile it all together and throw away that chip bag.

You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Cook the Quinoa
Bring a medium pot with quinoa and 1 cup water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 14-16 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in spinach until it wilts. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. While quinoa cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Remove leaves from cauliflower head, core, and cut into bite-sized florets. Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" slices on an angle. Quarter lime. Coarsely chop peanuts.
Sear the Vegetables
Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Place cauliflower florets and carrots in hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and season with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Roast the Vegetables
Transfer seared vegetables to prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer and roast until tender, 6-8 minutes. While vegetables roast, make curry.
Make the Curry Sauce
Return pan used to sear vegetables to medium heat. Add coconut milk, edamame, and curry and stir constantly until curry is dissolved, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Bring to a simmer and cook until a line can be drawn that holds for 5 seconds, 8-10 minutes.
Plate the Dish
Place a serving of quinoa on a plate. Add roasted vegetables and top with curry sauce. Garnish with peanuts and serve with lime wedges.
