Quinoa con verduras/ Quinoa with veggies

Ya les platiqué en mi post de croquetas de camote y quinoa, algunos de los beneficios de este maravilloso cereal, pero también vale la pena que consideren lo versátil que es, porque en serio, lo puedes poner a lo que quieras desde sopas, guisados, cereales, huevo, verduras, galletas, pasteles o prepararlo como se te antoje, como cereal para la mañana, como arroz con leche, como croquetas (que pronto postearé), o como lo hice yo hoy, como acompañamiento para mi salmón en salsa de perejil.

Esta receta al igual que muchas que llevan verduras las puedes variar como tú quieras. Ponerle una o dos o 10 verduras e irlas cambiando cada vez que lo hagas. Yo esta vez usé toda la verdura que me sobró de la sopa minestrone, pero por lo general siempre le echo más de 5 variedades para que los enanos coman más verdura.

Este acompañamiento lo haces en 10 minutos y es muy rico, puede sustituir una vez a la semana el arroz blanco que haces en tu casa y así ir introduciendo mejores alimentos poco a poco. También lo puedes hacer un día antes o en la noche para que ahorres tiempo al día siguiente.

Esta quinoa a veces me la como en bowl con un filete de pescado arriba y es una comida completa.

Con las cantidades de esta receta me salieron 6 porciones, que de hecho mi esposo y yo vamos a cenar.

 

Un abrazo,

Maca

Quinoa with veggies

I told you a bit about the benefits of quinoa in my sweet potato croquettes post, but you should also consider how versatile this wonderful cereal is. Honestly, you can add it to almost anything like soups, stews, cereals, eggs, veggies, cookies, cakes or prepare however you want: like a morning cereal, like rice pudding, in croquettes, or in this case, as a side dish for my salmon in parsley sauce.

This recipe is like many other with veggies can vary however you feel like. You can use 1 or 5 or 10 varieties of veggies and change it up every time you cook it. This time I used all the veggies I had left from my minestrone soup, but I try to at least have 5 different varieties of veggies in this dish to help the munchkins eat more vegetables.

It took me 10 minutes to make this side dish and it is really tasty. You can substitute your regular rice side dish once a week with this recipe and start adding healthier foods little by little. You can also make it the day before or at night to save time.

Sometimes I eat this recipe in a bowl with a piece of fish to have a complete meal that is also delicious.

With the quantities in this recipe I had 6 potions, and in fact, that is what we are going to have for dinner.
