Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup dry quinoa (red or yellow)
    1.75 cups water
    1 tbsp coconut oil
    1/2 pound cooking greens (turnip, collard, Swiss chard, etc.)
    salt and pepper to taste
    ( she has this as two servings, I have as 4 since I eat this as a side dish with dinner)


Add rinsed quinoa to the rice cooker bowl or saucepan.
Add half the bag (or 1/2 pound of greens) to the pot it will seem like a LOT, but I promise it will cook down.
Pour in 1.75 cups water.
And add a little coconut oil or other oil of your choice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to season.
If you cook this in the rice cooker, this is as easy as pressing GO (on the quick-cooking setting). If you cook on the stovetop, simmer until the quinoa is tender underneath.
When you open the lid you will see delicious, cooked greens on top!
And find nutty, red quinoa all cooked and ready on the bottom.
Adjust any additional seasoning as needed, and then serve and enjoy!
