New Recipe! Broccoli Cashew Quinoa - YUM!

Posted on August 6, 2017 at 10:05 PM

My family tried a new recipe this week that was so delicious and healthy, I had to share. Best of all it was QUICK! Only 15-20 minutes to table. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

•1 TBSP Coconut oil

•2 cloves garlic, minced

•1 small red onion, diced

•2 cups vegetable broth

•1 TBSP white wine vinegar (or just wine)

•1 TBSP sweetener (agave, Gentle Sweet or honey)

•2 TBSP lemon juice

•1 cup quinoa

•1/2 tsp salt

•2 packages frozen (steamable) broccoli

•1 cup cashew pieces

•1/2 cup fresh tomatoes

Saute garlic and onion in coconut oil. Add vegetable broth, wine, sweetener, lemon juice and quinoa. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes until grains absorb all the liquid.

While quinoa is simmering, microwave the packages of broccoli and set aside.

When the quinoa is done, remove from stove. Toss in steamed broccoli, cashews and fresh tomatoes.
