Easy Peezy Pesto Quinoa

This morning I decided to make something for lunch! Which I don’t usually have time for…

I wanted something easy and quick that I could have for the next few days using ingredients that I already had.

Pesto Quinoa

-1 cup quinoa, rinsed

-2 cups water or vegetable broth ( I used water)

-large handful fresh spinach ( I used a mix of kale and spinach)

-1/4 cup prepared pesto 

-1 cup of diced tomatoes 

-1/2 tsp fresh lemon or lime juice

-salt and pepper, to taste

-2 tbsp fresh grated Parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast (optional) (didn’t add)


Prepare quinoa as directed on package.

Fold in fresh spinach.

Remove from heat. Stir in pesto, add tomatoes, drizzle with lime juice and season well with salt and pepper to taste. Sea salt or kosher salt is always best!

 Super easy recipe and yummy!
