Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa

I got home from work a little later than planned and starred into a fridge on the eve of grocery shopping day. I worked with what I had, left over broccoli, asparagus and zucchini from previous meals this week and whipped up this quick and easy meal.


Serves: 2           Prep Time: 20 minutes           Ready In: 30 minutes


  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 1/4 cup water or vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 6-8 pieces of asparagus
  • 1/2 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup of shredded parmesan cheese


  1. Soak quinoa, and cook in water or vegetable broth
  2. While quinoa is cooking, chop vegetables and heat oil in a fry pan
  3. Saute veggies for 5-10 minutes, until soft
  4. Add quinoa, cream and cheese and stir until combined
