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.


Quinoa (1 cup)
Orange bell peppers
Minced garlic
Coarse black pepper
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
