Recipe yields about 6 servings as a side dish
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium yellow onion
3 medium carrots
1 large head of broccoli
2 cups Swiss chard
1 cup quinoa
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp red pepper flakes
Using a madoline (or really amazing knife skills) shred the onion, carrots, broccoli and Swiss chard.
Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute the vegetables for 2-3 minutes, until tender.
Add the quinoa, vegetable broth, salt & pepper, paprika and red pepper flakes to the skillet. Give it a good stir. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer for 15-18 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.
Serve alongside grilled chicken or sauteed shrimp for a super healthy and detoxifying meal or serve on its own as the main dish. Enjoy!
