It is Quinoa (KEEEEEN-whaaaa) time again! We all know now how Quinoa packs a powerful nutritional punch. It has protein and fiber to keep you satisfied, improves your overall health, and Quinoa contains ALL the amino acids as well. Speaking of Quinoa…Have you tried my most popular recipe yet...Moni’s Quinoa Mac n’ Cheese??
The seed has a fluffy texture and nutty taste that you will grow to love. For this EASY recipe, I mix it with mushrooms, avocado, tomatoes, asparagus, artichoke hearts, and then I toss in a cubed up veggie burger (can use chicken too) with some fresh basil and green onion. What you get is a meal full of powerful nutrients.
I really like Quinoa because you can add so much to it and create a healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner. That is sure what I do.
NOTE: This is only for 2 servings so if you are like me and are going to put in the effort, why not double everything, right? Also, I usually cook a bunch of Quinoa at a time so I can just be steps ahead and already have it made. Plus, then you can make a ton of other recipes for the week.
Here are all my QUINOA RECIPES. Enjoy!
