Quinoa is by far one of the healthiest grains available and this easy preparation is one of my favorite ways to eat it. When I know that I’ll have a busy week, I make a big batch on Sunday night and eat it all week.

  • 1 apple, cored and diced $0.50

  • 1 tbsp olive oil Pantry
  • juice of one lemon $0.50
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Oh my gosh that looks so good Gabi! This would be wonderful to take to the office for lunch—and I love it that quinoa is so high in protein—

This was GREAT!!!

Only… the instructions leave out the sausage… Might want to include that ;-)

Also, I used a Tofurky Sausage, which made it kosher. Slammin!!!
