Healthy, easy to make, cheap, and delicious!
You can also make this with cous-cous instead of quinoa, but quinoa is the healthier option.
-Butter, salt, and pepper
-1 onion, minced
-1 medium/large tomato or several smaller varieties (roma, san marzano, etc), diced
-3-4 cloves garlic, minced
-Feta cheese (also good with parmesan)
-Quinoa or cous-cous
Sautee onion in 1-2 tbspn butter, olive oil, or coconut oil over medium head. After the onion is cooked down (i like mine to be transparent), add the tomato and cook until tomatoes are softened. Add garlic and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes, and then remove from heat.
While the veggies are cooking, prepare your cous-cous or quinoa. I use a rice cooker for both, and it easy and turns out perfect every time.
Fold the veggie mix into the quinoa and lightly top with Feta. This dish is great on its own, or with a salad or even as a side dish.
