Last week, I tried a new cooking technique, and it was a huge success. I have to direct you to Peas & Crayons for Jenn's instructions for making FLUFFY quinoa. I know that she and I and this recipe were all meant to be, bonded together by our love for fluffy unicorns.
The trick is rinsing the quinoa first, and then cooking it dry for a minute before adding water.
Brilliance. The quinoa was so fluffy, not bitter, just like Jenn promised. Wheeee win!!
But first, I sauteed mushrooms, pre-roasted butternut squash, and brussels sprouts. #veggies
When the quinoa is ready and fluffed, in go the veggies! Anndddd STIR.
I scooped some into a bowl for myself, tucking the rest away for later. Although it tasted delicious all on its own, I added about a Tbsp of my go-to, balsamic vinegar, to the bowl for a nice flavor boost. Mm.
So there you have it! Fluffy quinoa, paired with always-tasty vegetables, and you've got yourself a nice, simple, nutritious meal, that also happens to be delicious. Don't take my word for it; make it at home! Dare you.
