Quinoa with Broccoli and Feta For One
This is an easy dish to make and can be sped up by prepping the two main ingredients before hand.
- 1/4 cup quinoa or 3/4 cup of cooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup cooked broccoli can be steamed or roasted
- 1 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
- 1 tbsp dried cranberries you don't have to measure - just sprinkle on as many as you like!
Cooking the Quinoa
Place the quinoa in a small saucepan with 1/2 a cup of water and bring to a boil on the stove.
When the water reaches a boil, turn the heat down to low and let simmer, covered, for 10-12 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Once the water is absorbed, remove from heat, fluff the quinoa with a fork and let sit covered for a few minutes
Assembling the Dish
Place cooked quinoa in a bowl, top with cooked broccoli. Sprinkle feta and dried cranberries over top
Drizzle your favourite dressing over top and serve
