Quinoa is here and back with a vengeance!


Plus it’s super green and full of broccoli!! Double broccoli, in fact. How double, you may ask? I shall tell you.IMG_2105Okay so here’s what you need:

  • 1.5 cups quinoa
  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut and steamed
  • 1/2-1 cup spinach
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Garlic

And here’s what you do:

Cook quinoa in either water or vegetable broth according to directions.

Take one half of the steamed broccoli and put it in a blender! Then add the spinach, oil, parmesan and garlic, to take. Blend that baby up and boom! Super easy, fast, and delicious broccoli-spinach pesto! Mix pesto into the quinoa. Add the other half of the steamed broccoli. Garnish with more parmesan if desired. Cheers to a healthy and delicious lunch or dinner!
