10-minute gluten-free broccoli quinoa-and-cheese

November 5, 2012

it doesn’t get simpler than this.


throw quinoa, a little butter or oil, and small pieces of broccoli into veggie broth

when done, mix with cheddar cheese, salt, and a dash of cayenne pepper




here’s what i did:

3 cups water
1 cup quinoa
two broccoli crowns, cut into small pieces
1 veggie bouillon cube
about t 2 chili garlic sauce
about 5 cloves roasted garlic
about a teaspoonful of old bacon grease (just a dash of oil would be fine.)
a pinch of assorted herbs
a few shakes of peppery seasoned salt

cover it with a lid. no need to stir or pay any attention at all.

just walk away and come back fifteen minutes later to dinner

if you want to serve it comfort food style, top each bowl with butter and cheese.
cooking the quinoa with broth gives it enough flavor that it really doesn’t need it! it’s good whatever you do to it!

i love it!
