Quinoa is listed as one of the top 20 healthiest foods to eat so we try to eat it as often as possible in place of white rice or potatoes. It’s a great alternative to brown rice as it cooks in just 15 minutes compared to the 45 minutes to one hour required for brown rice.
- 2 cups organic vegetable broth
- 1 cupRedhill organic quinoa
- 4 Melissa’s baby sweet red & orange peppers, chopped
- 2 scallions, chopped (use only part of the white and all of the green portion)
In a small saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Add quinoa, cover and reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes. Near end of cooking time, stir. When all liquid is absorbed, remove from heat and add scallions and the red and orange peppers; stir to combine. Cover until ready to serve.
