This is just about the quickest and easiest way to liven up quinoa that I have come across yet!
- 1 cup quinoa, cooked according to directions
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 3 stalks of celery, chopped
- juice of 1/2 large lemon
- olive oil
- salt, pepper
In a large saute pan, soften onion in a few drops of olive oil. Add celery and saute another minute. Toss in cooked quinoa, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Saute another minute and serve!
I will say it every time – but don’t over cook the veg! The celery should still have a crunch to it! A variety of textures is part of what makes food delicious!
We served it with Gardein BBQ Pulled Shreds (meh – they were ok – we were being LAZY) and steamed broccoli. The quinoa totally made up for the marginal “protein” on the plate!
