Combined with any veggie blend, quinoa transforms from a bland side dish to the sparkling main event. With this healthy blend of green veggies and protein-packed chickpeas, this dish is a great healthy alternative to overly-starchy sides.
- 1 cup quinoa
- Olive oil
- 1/2 bag spinach
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1 can (14.5 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- In a medium saucepan, bring quinoa and 2 cups water to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking, covered, until water is absorbed, about 10 to 15 minutes.
- While quinoa is cooking, sauté spinach, onions, chickpeas, and mushrooms in a skillet with 1 drizzle olive oil. Season as desired (we like Sriracha, curry powder, paprika, or oregano).
- When quinoa is cooked, add to skillet with veggies and stir until well combined.
