Quinoa with Spinach and Peppers is one of my easy and favorite ways to enjoy my variety of veggies right from the fridge. It could be perfect for lunch or dinner and it is totally satisfying and nourishing! And the best part is that it takes less than 20 minutes to make! You can skip or change any of the veggies if you want. And this could be great if you just have a plain quinoa sitting in the fridge waiting for some attention and love. Try it for yourself and fall in love!
1). Combine quinoa and 1 1/2 cups water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Add a pinch of salt, lower the heat to the lowest possible and simmer for 15 minutes. Keep closed for another 3-5 minutes.
2). While quinoa is cooking prepare and cut the veggies.
3). Using a wide pan or skillet place 2-3 tbsp oil and add the onions and peppers. mix for 2-3 minutes, add the carrot and continue until peppers are soft but still have some crunch. Turn off the heat and wait for the quinoa to finish cooking.
4). Once the quinoa is ready, turn on the skillet flame again and add the quinoa and spinach. Mix for 2 minutes. add salt and pepper to your taste and serve.
This could totally be a meal-prep to work b.t.w!!!!
