Serves 4 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 30

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 rib celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 cup quinoa, well rinsed*
1 bay leaf Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cups canned low-sodium chicken broth
1 can (15 ounces) peas and carrots, drained


Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the celery, onion, and garlic. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often, or until the vegetables are softened, but not browned.



Stir in the rinsed quinoa, bay leaf, salt and pepper, as desired. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for 10 minutes.



Add the peas and carrots, cover and cook another 5 minutes, until all of the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork, mixing the vegetables into the quinoa.


Adjust the seasonings and remove the bay leaf.



* Quinoa is a grain that can be found in the grains section or healthy foods section of most grocery stores. It will taste bitter if it is not thoroughly rinsed. Adapted from Get with the Program!
