I really love to cook but don’t get much of an opportunity to do so. I travel constantly for work and am only really at home on the weekends (remember my sob pet story?). Because of this schedule, I find it a tad pointless to go to the grocery store to loads of fresh (and perishable) food when come Monday morning, I’ll be on the road again. This past weekend, I had a different tune. I went to the grocery store and picked my produce carefully, ensuring that I would use what I bought. Long story short, I bought some quinoa and wanted to make it even healthier by adding fresh veggies. It was one of the easiest things I’ve ever made and would make a quick dinner or health
To cook, bring 2 cups of low-sodium broth to a boil (you can use water, but I find broth gives it extra flavor) then add the quinoa and reduce to a simmer, cooking for 15 minutes. Once cooked (no draining necessary), add ingredients of your choice. I made up the recipe as I went along, just adding cherry tomatoes, garlic, basil, red pepper, onion, and parmesan. I seasoned to taste with sea salt and fresh black pepper.
I feel healthier already. What do you make in a pinch?
