Quinoa & Spinach Side Dish

Standard

Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in large pan. Add one chopped medium yellow onion.

Add 1 teaspoon sea salt and some fresh ground black pepper. Saute onions and seasonings until onions start to become transparent. Add 1 teaspoon minced garlic.

Add 2 cups cooked quinoa.

Add two large handfuls of chopped fresh organic baby spinach. Cook for a short amount of time, making sure to stir...you still want your spinach to have some texture.

Finely chop a nice bundle of fresh cilantro.

Turn heat off and add cilantro stirring well.

Finished product...fast, easy and oh-so-good for you (and good tasting!).

      • That is a challenge. The price in our “big box” type stores is really high…we do have two local health food stores that I should check at. Thank you for getting my wheels turning.

      • It is so expensive in your (I like your expression) “big box” shops and I just can’t justify the cost so I haven’t bought it yet. It seems to be very trendy here and comes with a trendy price tag. I will look elsewhere.
