Quinoa with Fresh Veggies

Before my ride this evening, I prepped dinner so when we were finished and famished we wouldn’t just pick up dirty fast food on the way home.

Earlier in the afternoon, I put 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs into the crockpot with Cajun seasoning, salt, and a couple cups of water. Cooked on low for about 6 hours.

I put 2 cups of quinoa and 3 1/2 cups of water into the rice cooker, turned it on right before we left

I prepped the vegetables before leaving so all I had to do was toss everything together and serve. 

I  hit up the farmers market over the weekend and scored some beautiful tomatoes and peppers


4 cups of quinoa, cooked

1 red onion, diced

2 bell pepper, diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 cups of spinach, chopped

2 tomatoes, diced

1/2 cup fresh parsley, leaves chopped

Pinch of salt

I sautéed the onion and pepper until caramelized, then stirred the garlic in before removing from the heat. I placed them in a bowl and chilled in the fridge until dinner.

Once ready for dinner I tossed everything together and topped with the chicken

This recipe makes several servings and holds well for a few days so you can enjoy multiple times. 
Tonight was a beautiful night for a ride, I hope you were able to enjoy it as well!
