Quinoa is one of my all time favorite foods. I love it, I mean, I really love it! Quinoa is fast, filling, and super yummy! Quinoa is also a complete protein, meaning it contains all 20 amino acids found in animal meats. Since I don’t eat a lot of meat, quinoa helps me get adequate protein in my diet. This recipe is simple, it’s basically a bowl of a few of my favorite foods. I’ve sent my husband to work with this dish countless times. It’s still great after being reheated.
2 cups of rinsed uncooked quinoa (any color)
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 cup broccoli cut
1 cup zucchini cut
1 cup greens (spinach, kale or both)
1-2 clove’s of garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large sauce pan cook quinoa according to package directions. Once cooked add coconut oil to warm quinoa and stir until oil is completely melted. The coconut oil gives the quinoa a soft texture, I almost never serve quinoa without it.
Once quinoa is cooked and has been graced with coconut oil, mix in all chopped veggies and garlic. Let sit over low heat stirring frequently for 5-10 minutes until veggies are softened. Your beautiful quinoa is ready to be served. Add salt, pepper, and enjoy!
