So this time of year is my time to get lean. Which means eating the same ol same ol and always being hungry. But its also when I get real creative in the kitchen. I look for natural ways to flavor my food without a bunch of salt, fat, etc. Today I struck gold with this Quinoa recipe. By no means am I a seasoned chef, so if I can do it, so can you!
1 Cup Organic Whole Grain Quinoa
2 Cups Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth
2 Teaspoon Organic Garlic Olive Oil (Trader Joes)
Diced Red Onion (optional)
Dash of Pepper
Put Quinoa and Chicken broth into pan, bring to boil. Add in diced jalapeno, onion, and pepper. Bring to simmer and cover for about 20-30 minutes until water is evaporated. And its as simple as that! Serve with a lean protein, today i did Tilapia, and a vegetable, today I did Kale. Now you have yourself a easy, healthy, flavorful dish. It took me about 30 min from beginning to end but I made extra quinoa to last me a few more days so time is no excuse! Stay healthy my friends….
