Ingredients

          Near east Roasted Red Pepper Quinoa

        1 cup cauliflower

          1 cup broccoli

            Olive oil

          Garlic powder

          Salt

 

 

Instructions.

          Bring 1 and ¾ cup water x2 to a boil with the Quinoa ( reading instructions from the box)

          Once boiled add in the seasoning, stir and turn down to medium heat.

          While that’s cooking start the cauliflower and broccoli in just enough olive oil to coat the bottom and add in garlic powder, salt and mrs dash for extra flavor to the vegetables.  Cover. Stir occasionally.

          Once there is just a little water left in the quinoa mixture and the vegetables seem just about cooked add them in with the quinoa to marry all the flavors together.

          Continue mixing until all the water is gone

          Add salt to taste.  

 

This dish is so simple. It was hearty and DELICIOUS and perfect for lunch on this cold snowy day!

It was my first time making anything with quinoa for my mom and she loved it. So that was super rewarding!

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
