Quinoa with Broccoli {and feta!!}

Hi Everyone!  I just love summer and the fresh food that comes with it! Summer feels like it's over.... school started this week for us {whaaaa!} But, the garden food is still going strong. SO.. I'm using it to create fresh and healthy recipes for my family. Earlier this week we enjoyed this Quinoa with broccoli and feta for dinner and it was amazing. Serve it with tasty chicken sausage and your favorite salad for a great meal.

I've really been loving quinoa lately, its works like rice in is so good for you! Add some steamed broccoli and feta for flavor and this is a dish that even my kids will gobble up.

Here's what you need:
1 cup uncooked quinoa {prepare as directed on package}
1 large head of broccoli
4 oz crumbled feta OR 6 oz 1% cottage cheese
I didn't have cottage cheese on hand so I used feta, but BOTH at amazing in this dish.
Steam the broccoli to just done while the quinoa is cooking.  Mix together when done and top with the either cheese.

  1. Good Morning Jamie, I do enjoy eating quinoa and I love how it can be mixed with so many other ingredients. Feta is also a cheese we eat a lot in this house, so mixing quinoa, feta and broccoli is just perfect.
    I love vegetables added to salads, I enjoy eating some vegetables raw but this week I am making a Stilton and Broccoli Quiche.... vegetables are so versatile.
    I will certainly be making your Quinoa with Broccoli and Feta salad.
    Best Wishes
