3 cups dry quinoa
30 ozs chopped chicken breast
16 oz corn
12 oz asparagus
16 oz broccoli
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 oz. garlic
2 cups chicken stock
4 cups water

Recipe Directions for quinoa pilaf

  1. cook chicken in a pot mix garlic and soy sauce with it about 4 cups of water. When it is done, chop it into bite size pieces and set aside.

  2. cook quinoa following directions on package. I add 2 cups of chicken stock to give it more flavor.

  3. when the quinoa is boiling, add frozen veggies and the chicken. (I chose corn, broccoli and asparagus) you can also do fresh veggies like zucchini, squash, peas, whatever you have on hand.

  4. Reduce the heat to simmer and cover the whole pot. don't stir.

  5. Makes about 12 1 1/2 cup servings.

  6. I often add soy sauce to it before I eat it to add a little flavor. It can be made with out the chicken for a vegetarian meal.

  7. I put it individual plastic baggies after it has cooled to take to work with me all week.
