Rainbow Quinoa

The best thing about this dish is all the gorgeous colors within it. The sauce included has a sweet and sour taste that is FABULOUS. 


* chicken breasts

* quinoa

* cabbage

* carrots


* mushrooms

* 1 can of pineapple chunks

* 1/2 a cup of orange sauce 

* 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

* 2 tablespoons of garlic salt

The beauty of this recipe is you don’t have to have exact measurements. I like to challenge people to not follow recipes to the bone so you can add your own flare and customize it to your taste buds. I always cook 4-5 servings so my husband and I can have leftovers for lunch the next day, or sometimes we’re fat and eat a lot. The veggies are interchangeable as well, you can always add more or replace. I use at least a cup of each vegetable and two cups if they’re my preferred. Rice can be used instead of quinoa! 


1) Boil chicken in water (15-20 minutes) and once it’s cooked thoroughly shred into chunks with your hands (make sure to let cool for a few minutes).

2) Cook your quinoa in a saucepan for 30 minutes (make sure to cover with lid)

*While the chicken and quinoa cook, the veggies and sauce will be prepared

3) Sauce: chop up the pineapple chunks into fine pieces. In a small pot add the orange sauce, pineapple pieces, and juice. Season with soy sauce and garlic salt. Leave it on medium low for 15 minutes and mix occasionally.

4) Veggies: sauté veggies on medium high heat over coconut oil or olive oil and season lightly with garlic salt (10 minutes)

5)  Dump it all on a plate and eat!
