Carrot, Tomato, and Spinach Quinoa Pilaf with Ground
Quinoa is one of the best healthy
alternatives for a lot of carbs out there. Recently,
my wife started switching us from white rice to
brown rice to settling on quinoa. It has definitely
made us healthier and lighter on our feet.
2 teaspoons olive
1 cup quinoa
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cups water
2 tablespoons chicken-flavored veggie
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 carrot, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 broccoli, chopped
1 cup baby spinach, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1lb ground turkey (optional)
4.5 bounces can black beans, rinsed and drained
1) Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil
in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion
in hot oil until translucent, about 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium-low, stir quinoa with the
onion, and cook, stirring constantly, until the
quinoa is lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.
2) Pour water into the saucepan; add bouillon
granules, black pepper, and thyme. Bring the liquid
to a boil, place a cover on the saucepan, reduce
heat to low, and cook at a simmer until the quinoa
softens, about 5 minutes.
3) Stir carrot into the quinoa mixture,
replace cover, and continue to cook at a simmer
until water is completely absorbed, about 10 minutes
4) Remove saucepan from heat. Stir tomato and
baby spinach into the quinoa mixture until the
spinach wilts, about 2 minutes.
5) Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large
skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir turkey
in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7
minutes; drain and discard grease. Reduce heat to
medium-low. Stir black beans with the turkey; cook
and stir until the beans are hot, 2 to 3 minutes;
add the quinoa mixture, stir, and cook until heated
through, about 5 minutes more.
