One pot. Healthy. Quick. Delicious. Vegetarian. Inexpensive.
I mean really, what else could you want?!
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
6 oz tomato paste
1/2 cup cilantro
2 tbl lemon juice
1 tbl lemon zest
1 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
2 cups chickpeas
There aren’t even enough directions to label them as “steps”!
Add all ingredients into a pot. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes until the liquid is absorbed.
If you like spicy food, add in some red pepper flakes and jalepenos!!
Garnish with a slice of lemon and cracked pepper.
Not a vegetarian? Make this as a side dish instead of a main to accompany any meal! Trying to figure out how to pair it? Place on top of a bed of lettuce or arugula with some chicken or fish!
Can it get ANY easier?!
