Did you know quinoa is a complete protein? This means it has all nine essential amino acids that your body needs. It is also a good source of iron, fiber and B6.
Let's get to the recipe. Here is what you will need.
1 cup of cooked quinoa
3 or 4 mushrooms diced
1 medium onion diced
4 mini sweet peppers or 1/2 of a large bell pepper
1 tbsp oregano
some water or vegetable broth for sauteing
To cook your quinoa, rinse 1 cup of quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. Add it to a pan along with 3 cups of water. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. You will have about 3 cups of cooked quinoa.
Saute the mushrooms, onions and peppers until tender in some vegetable broth or water. Sauteing this way saves on calories as apposed to using an oil.
Mix the quinoa, sauteed vegetables and oregano together. Add little pizza sauce. You do not need a lot. Just add a little and to your liking. Enjoy!!
