Cheesy Vegan Quinoa and Potato Dinner
Quinoa is a super grain! It is packed with protein, gluten free, and is a good source of complex carbohydrates. I like to fill up on quinoa the night before a long run, and this recipe is perfect for easy delicious carbo-loading. Plus, the nutritional yeast provides a delicious cheesy flavor along with essential vitamins and minerals.
1 Cup Organic Quinoa
2 Cups Water
4 Cups of Diced Summer Squash
1 Large White Onion Diced
1-2 Medium Sized White Potatoes Diced
1 TBSP Garlic Powder
1/2 Cup Nutritional Yeast
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Combine water and quinoa in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Then turn sown heat, cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes. Throw diced squash, potatoes, and onion all into a skillet and cook until onions are caramelized and squash is slightly browned. Add salt, pepper, garlic, and any other seasonings you would like to add to the potatoes and squash. Remove lid from boiler pan and add the grilled vegetables to the quinoa. Add nutritional yeast and mix completely... then enjoy!
