Sometimes you only want a single serving meal that is easy to whip up. This recipe takes about 20 minutes, can easily be multiplied, and is gluten-free!


And bonus!!! I was able to use some of the peppers I got from the Berry Farms Farm Box to make this recipe. 

ingredients.

1/3 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed and drained
2/3 cup chicken broth
2 slices center-cut bacon
1 cup chopped broccoli
3/4 cup chopped mixed bell peppers
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 oz. cooked chicken
1 tbsp. chopped cilantro

directions.

Place quinoa and broth in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until all of the broth is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook bacon according to package instructions, either in the microwave or in a skillet. Once cool enough to handle, chop the bacon.

Place broccoli, peppers, and onion in a microwave-safe bowl with 1 tbsp. water. Cook for 1 minute, or until softened.

In a bowl, combine quinoa, bacon, veggies, and cilantro and lightly toss.

makes 1 serving.

tips.  You can sauté the veggies in a skillet, if you don’t want to use the microwave. The micro can just speed up the process!


You can also sub in whatever veggies you have on hand ---mushrooms are great in this!
