Healthy Eating Tip With Recipe - Quinoa - Articles Surfing

Quinoa (keen-wa) is much like superman, it's a super grain * in actuality it's not really a grain. Quinoa comes from a plant very similar to spinach; it's the seed of the plant. It is packed with protein and potassium and filled with iron and riboflavin. You can find quinoa at health food and specialty food stores. Many local grocery stores are starting to stock their shelves with quinoa now too. Quinoa is a great replacement for white rice as a side dish or as part of the main course. It is a very flavorful grain and a wonderful addition to your healthy eating style.

Quinoa with Flank Steak and Vegetables
1 cup quinoa
1 flank steak (at least 1 pound)
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
sliced onion
1 8oz package of mushrooms
(All vegetables are optional and can be substituted with other vegetables)

Preparation: Cook the quinoa as directed on the box. Once it's cooked, add salt and pepper to taste and mix with a little bit of olive oil to make it moist. Cut flank steak into bite size pieces and saut* in olive oil over low to medium heat. Cut up green pepper, red pepper and onion and saut* in a separate pan using olive oil. Once the meat is cooked through, add the vegetables and saut* together for a few minutes. Then add quinoa to the meat and vegetable mixture and mix it all together and serve.
