Anti-Inflammatory Quinoa

This is an easy dish as a side. If you want to add some protein, I suggest adding a can of rinsed chickpeas at the end (to warm) for a vegetarian meal, or some diced pre-cooked chicken. Double the ingredients and you have an easy work-day lunch as this can be eaten hot or cold!

Serves 2


  • ¾ cup dry quinoa (pre-rinsed)

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 dash salt

  • ½ tbsp turmeric

  • 1 dash black pepper

  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped


  • In a saucepan place 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the quinoa and simmer until the water is absorbed (about 10-15 minutes). Or you can be lazy like me, and just use a rice cooker so you can do other things!

  • Melt coconut oil in a skillet. Add diced onions, turmeric, pepper and salt, and lightly sauté for a few minutes.

  • Add broccoli and lightly sauté for 5-6 minutes, until it becomes softened.

  • Add the cooked quinoa and stir everything together.

  • Serve & enjoy!
