Quinoa and Vegetables

3

This is a delicious and healthy dish that can be served as a side dish or an entree. I love this simple recipe that is full of nutrients.

4
1 Medium Zucchini, diced
1 Medium Yellow Squash, diced
1 Red Bell Pepper, cut into strips
1/2 cup Button Mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup Uncooked Quinoa
To taste salt
To taste pepper
Take the butter out of the fridge to soften. Cut up all of the vegetables and put into separate bowls, set aside. Mix the butter and the garlic powder together, set aside. Cook the quinoa as the package tells you. While the quinoa is cooking, put a fry pan on the stove on medium heat. Put the butter in the heated fry pan and let melt. Then stir in the mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash, and Italian seasoning and cook until the squash is almost translucent, about 10 minutes. For the last 3 minutes, add the pepper. If you want the pepper to be softer, add earlier in the cooking time. Toss the quinoa and vegetables together and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
