I love quinoa both for taste and health benefits.  *See previous Quinoa blog for more info*

Here’s one of my favorite quinoa dishes….it’s easy. ENJOY! 

1st step: Cook the quinoa

1 cup quinoa + 2 cups water for ~20-25 min.  I add salt, half tsp olive oil, and cilantro.

Then:  Add garlic to 1 tbsp of olive oil to pan. You may also saute chopped onions if you like. 

Then: Add in chopped veggies and spices.  I used squash, fresh basil, and rosemary.

When veggies are soft, add quinoa and season as desired.  I use salt, pepper, more rosemary, and onion powder.

Optional addition:  For a more hearty texture, I added a crumbled vegan burger.

Presentation:A scoop of your tasty quinoa mixture on seaweed is both attractive and delicious.
