In case you haven’t already caught on, I HEART QUINOA. What’s not to heart? It’s a super food, y’all. It’s delicious and nutritious, and quinoa. Quinoa should be the new word for awesome.
What’s in it?
1 cup quinoa
2 cups chicken broth - Or, 1c. chicken broth, 1 c. water Progresso is GF and ICF.
1 shallot diced
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper
How to make it happen?
In a medium saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil. Add rinsed quinoa to pan, cover and reduce heat to low. Leave it alone, let it simmer until all the broth is gone.
Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat.
Dice shallot, peppers. Add to skillet and saute. When they’re almost cooked to desired done-ness, add garlic then salt and pepper to taste.
Add cooked quinoa to skillet and mix well. This is great as a side dish. I usually eat it as a meal instead of a side though.
