Grilled Pork & Vegetable Quinoa

20140604-173750-63470582.jpg

Thin sliced pork, marinated for 8 hours with a dry rub (Pepper’s BBQ- Pork Stank). Grilled on 400 degrees, 3 minutes each side.

Quinoa cooked in low sodium chicken stock. Stir fried veggies: red pepper, mushrooms, onion, garlic, scallions, celery, and one jalapeño. Tossed with the quinoa, black pepper, turmeric, and dried parsley.

To combat the spice, a little avocado on the side with S & P.

Delicious.

Quinoa & Edamame

20140525-190124-68484832.jpg

I love edamame! With salt, on salads, or even in this quinoa dish.

I cooked the quinoa in low sodium chicken stock.

I added chopped red pepper, edamame, black pepper, and adobo seasoning after the quinoa was finished cooking.

Mix it together & let it all sit in the pot (with the cover on) for a few minutes.

Great as a side dish, in an omelet, on a bed of spinach…

Doing it Quinoa Style

Want to add this healthy, protein-packed grain to your meal? On it’s own it can be plain. Stir fry up some veggies, I chose garlic (always!), red onion, snap peas, peas, and a yellow pepper. Throw in some chopped cilantro and scallions with a hint of lime, some oil and salt and pepper and bam! This is great as leftovers in a wrap, or toss in some chicken for an all-around dish.
