Nutty Quinoa Side Dish

Nutty Quinoa

I hardly ever eat quinoa and now I wonder why? I love it! It’s great to make a big pot of and have for the week. This recipe is a perfect side for chicken or any other high protein dinner. A small serving of this is super filling! Plus their is no oil added!

Serves 4:

Ingredients:
-1 cup cooked quinoa (simply bring water & quinoa to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes then take off heat and let cool for 5 minutes)
-1 cup defrosted frozen peas with a little salt and pepper
-1/3 cup canned black beans (drained, rinsed and heated for about 45 secs in microwave)
-1 tbsp soya sauce(or to taste)
-3 tbsp walnuts chopped very small

Directions: Combine warm peas, quinoa, black beans and walnuts in a bowl. Stir in soya sauce. Serve!
Simple as that and it tastes awesome!
