Quinoa con pollo (quinoa-chicken pilaf)
(no ratings)

Delicious version of my favorite Colombian dish, arroz con pollo. The quinoa provides added protein & fiber, plus some fun mouth-texture, & with the veggies included this is basically a one-dish meal!

You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.

Fried rice using quinoa instead of rice, edamame and egg for protein, and lots of frozen veggies to keep things easy.

Quinoa-Sweet Potato Casserole
Good 3.7/5

This recipe came about because I had just made vegetable enchiladas and had leftovers, plus quinoa from earlier in the week. Thankfully, this experiment yielded a hearty, delicious meal.
