Lemon quinoa

This is just about the quickest and easiest way to liven up quinoa that I have come across yet!

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!
