If you are looking to lose weight, gain energy, and feel better you have to maximize your veggie intake and this is such an easy delicious way to do it!
Serves: 8
  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 1 bag shredded carrots, about 2 cups
  • 1 large head of broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 head of purple cabbage, chopped fine
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 Tbs Adobo Seasoning
  • 2 tsps garlic powder - you can also use fresh garlic if you have it
  • sea salt & lots of fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 bag frozen peas
  • 2 Tbs golden flax seeds
  • 1 avocado as garnish
  • Sriracha as garnish
  • 4 cups water, veggie broth, or homemade bone broth
  1. In a large pot over medium high heat add water or broth, quinoa, all your chopped veggies, adobo seasoning, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook until all the water is absorbed – about 15-20 mins
  2. Then stir in frozen peas and flax seeds. You could also add some greens in this step: kale, spinach, swiss chard or arugula would all taste great! Add more salt and pepper if needed. I love mine with LOTS of fresh cracked pepper!
  3. Serve as is or garnish with fresh avocado slices, a drizzle of Sriracha, and a sprig of parsley.
  4. You could also have it with a piece of grilled chicken or fish on top or on the side!
