Quinoa with sautéed veggies 

about 4 servings

1 cup quinoa, rinsed and cooked

4 ounces of baby spinach

1 medium zucchini, sliced or cubed

1 medium squash, sliced or cubed

1 small onion (red or yellow)

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

8 oz mushrooms

1 cup corn, fresh or frozen

1 can of black beans

Cook quinoa in water or broth according to package directions.  Meanwhile, sauté spinach, zucchini, squash, onion, garlic, corn and mushrooms in a extra virgin olive oil.  In a separate pan, heat black beans.  When quinoa is done, combine with vegetables and black beans and serve.  For non-vegetarians, you can also a chicken breast for a little extra protein.  Other veggies that are also great are grated carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, or kale.  This is also fabulous reheated the next day, making it perfect to pack for a healthy lunch!
