Beefy-Soy Quinoa

Since learning that I love quinoa, I decided to try to use it as a different ingredient in some of our favorite recipes.  This recipe is kind of a different take on vegetable fried rice (without the egg).  I have to say, I was very pleased with how it came out, as was my husband.  He said that’s how I should cook it from now on!  I put chicken in it this time, but I think I’ll leave it out next time.  Give this a try next time you’re looking for a light side, or even a lighter lunch!

Beefy-Soy Quinoa
(4 servings)

1 cup quinoa, rinsed well
2 tbsp lite soy sauce
1 can low-sodium beef broth
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen broccoli florets


Combine all ingredients into a small pot with a lid.  Stir well and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cover.  Cook for about 20 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.  Fluff and serve.
