Tips in the Kitchen

Woohoo we made it to Wednesday!

After my workout this morning, I had a hankering for dinner, so I had a bowl of quinoa and veggies from the night before topped with salsa. Usually I’m more into breakfast for dinner, but my taste buds had a different plan for today!

Super Easy Quinoa and Veggies

1 cup quinoa

1/2 onion

1/2 garlic clove

1 can corn

1 cup broccoli

1/2 avocado

2 Tablespoons jalapenos

1/4 tsp seasoning salt & red pepper flakes

Directions

Saute onions and garlic on  medium heat for 5 minutes. Mix in 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain corn and add to the pot. Add the broccoli, avocado, jalapenos, and seasonings, mixing it all together over low heat for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy. 🙂
