Serves 2

  • ¾ cup dry quinoa (pre-rinsed)

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 dash salt

  • ½ tbsp turmeric

  • 1 dash black pepper

In a saucepan place 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the quinoa and simmer until the water is absorbed (about 10-15 minutes). 

Melt coconut oil in a skillet. Add diced onions, turmeric, pepper and salt, and lightly sauté for a few minutes.

Add broccoli and lightly sauté for 5-6 minutes, until it becomes softened.

Add the cooked quinoa and stir everything together. 

Serve & enjoy!

Tip: Add some cayenne pepper or curry powder for an extra spicy kick.
