Tonight I made pineapple quinoa. It was so good! The sweetness of the pineapple and the fluffiness of the quinoa was a delicious combination.
Here’s what I used:
- 1 1/2 cup organic quinoa
- 1 tsp. organic EVOO
- 1 1/2 cup pineapple, cut into chunks
- 1/4 cup organic green onions, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tsp. organic soy sauce
- sprinkle of cilantro
Cook your quinoa according to package directions. I cooked mine in 2 cups of organic chicken broth and 1 cup of water. Cut your pineapple into chunks. Set aside. Then heat a wok on high and add 1 teaspoon EVOO. Add your chopped green onions and minced garlic to the wok. Saute for 1 minute, then add your pineapple and quinoa and stir. Add 2 teaspoons soy sauce and cilantro, stir, and cook for another 30 seconds.
This was a side dish for Josh, but served as my dinner, and was very filling on it’s own. Quinoa is a complete source of protein, so unlike rice and other grains, it keeps you feeling full longer.
Hope you enjoy!
