Tired of Rice? Add More Quinoa to Your Life

If you’re looking for another quick healthy meal, here is one GYSB creation I strongly encourage you to try: Quinoa, orange bell peppers, spinach and grilled chicken. Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah“) is a great substitute for white rice that delivers a good source of complete protein.

I apologize for not having exact measurements. I often throw things together without using measuring utensils.

Ingredients:

Quinoa (1 cup)
Onion
Spinach
Orange bell peppers
Minced garlic
Thyme
Coarse black pepper
EVOO
Montreal Spicy Steak Seasoning
Low sodium chicken broth

When cooking the quinoa, use 1 cup of quinoa to 1 cup of water + 1 cup of low sodium chicken broth and a few large piece of onion. bring to a boil. Simmer for 12 – 15 minutes until all the water is absorbed into the quinoa seeds.

Wash and season chicken (to your liking) with coarse black pepper, a tad/pinch of sea salt, thyme, and a shake of Montreal spicy steak seasoning. Grill chicken (on grill or stove top) in a cap full of EVOO and minced garlic.

in a separate skillet, sauté bell pepper and spinach (add spinach last for just a couple of seconds)

Add sautéed veggies to quinoa and top with grilled chicken
