Recipe Ingredients for One-pot Quinoa and Greens

170 grams uncooked quinoa
1 3/4 cups water
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 pound mustard greens
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for One-pot Quinoa and Greens

  1. Add rinsed quinoa to the rice cooker bowl or saucepan.

  2. Add half the bag (or 1/2 pound of greens) to the pot ? it will seem like a LOT, but I promise it will cook down.

  3. Pour in 1.75 cups water.

  4. And add a little coconut oil or other oil of your choice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to season.

  5. If you cook this in the rice cooker, this is as easy as pressing GO (on the quick-cooking setting). If you cook on the stovetop, simmer until the quinoa is tender underneath.

  6. When you open the lid you will see delicious, cooked greens on top!

  7. And find nutty, red quinoa all cooked and ready on the bottom.

  8. Adjust any additional seasoning as needed, and then serve and enjoy!
