Quinoa, Beans, and Chicken | #FoodieFriday



I tend to cook a large amount of quinoa and I add it to different recipes throughout the week. I made this combination spare of the moment. It was just as delicious as the previous times I've mixed in quinoa. There are multiple steps to this recipe but it's still quick and easy. I was done and eating in less than 30 minutes since the quinoa was already cooked.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup of Cooked Quinoa
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp of each Seasoning (black pepper, salt, turmeric, garlic)
1 tbsp Yellow Peppers
1/4 cup cooked Black beans
1/2 Avocado
1 tbsp shredded cheese
1/4 cup precooked Grilled chicken
Onion
Spinach
Serving size: 2


Step by Step:
Cooking quinoa is very simple. Measure out the amount you want and add quinoa to a pot of water.  1 cup of water to 1/2 cup of quinoa. Once the water starts to boil, turn off the heat and cover the pot. It will be read in 10-15 minutes (water will be absorbed by the quinoa)
1. Add olive oil to a skillet and sautée onions, peppers, and spinach.
2. Add in skillet frozen grilled chicken. Chop into chunks as it cooks.
3. Add in cooked quinoa and add seasonings
4. Place skillet ingredients on a plate. Top with cooked black beans. Cover with shredded cheese and diced avocado.

Enjoy!
