Why I Love This Recipe

Inspired by a quinoa side dish recipe by Tyler Florence, I threw this together for dinner last night. It was delish!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup quinoa
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, sliced
1/2 cup tomato, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup artichoke hearts, drained and sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 Tbls. butter
1 cup shrimp, cleaned and deveined
pepper to taste (you won't need salt thanks to the olives)


Bring stock to a boil

Add quinoa and reduce to a simmer, cook 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed

Remove from heat, fold in olives, tomato, and artichoke hearts

Cover and set aside

In a saute pan, melt butter

Add onion and cook until tender

Add garlic and cook 1 minute

Add shrimp and cook until pink, 3- 5 minutes

Fold shrimp into quinoa mixture and serve hot
