Broccoli Topped Quinoa

Sorry about being late posting this, I've been so busy with school, but here it is as I promised! The recipe is very yummy, and extremely easy to prepare.

1 cup frozen broccoli florets
1/2 cup quinoa (rinsed)
1 1/4 cup water
2 TBS EarthBalance (or other veg*n margarine)
1 TBS canola oil

  1. Boil water in saucepan, add quinoa. Cover and cook on very low heat for 15 minutes.

  2. Heat oil in skillet until hot.

  3. Add broccoli florets and cook until heated through.

  4. Lower heat, and add margarine. Stir until broccoli is coated in margarine. Turn heat off.

  5. Remove quinoa from heat, put in dish.

  6. Pour broccoli and margarine on quinoa and stir.

Now you have a balanced 1-dish meal! (fat=margarine, protein=quinoa, carb=quinoa, veg=brocolli)

I really must start using more quinoa. Yours with broccoli sounds great.
