Undiscovered…Until Now

I’ve decided that quinoa is my new favorite grain. It’s super easy to make, and absorbs flavor really well.

This week, I had cause to make it not once, but twice for my family.

The first, a very simple stuffed pepper. I used the quinoa along with ground beef and a bit of shredded Monterey Jack as the filling. A bath of marinara, pressed baked potatoes, and cheesy garlic bread rounded out the meal.

Then, last night I wanted something to accompany baked chicken and green beans. Quinoa again came to mind. Only I simply cooked it up in some low-sodium chicken broth and seasoned with pepper.

  2. We halved the quinoa and kept the veggie amt unchanged. We chose red quinoa and dusted the top with ground cumin, pepper, and about 1/3 c of shredded monterrey jack cheese and baked for the full 35 min. So very tasty!
