Spinach & Quinoa Salad  

Spinach Quinoa Salad

One of Sophie’s favorite recipes is sautéed spinach over quinoa, which she makes for herself almost everyday.  It is her go-to lunch on school days.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup precooked quinoa

2 cups pre-washed baby spinach

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Lemon pepper & salt to taste

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/8 tsp paprika

Sophie pre-cooks her quinoa per directions on the package and stores in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. She coats the bottom of a salute pan with olive oil, adds spinach and tosses until wilted, adds the spices and lemon juice, and serves over pre-heated quinoa. This delicious recipe is fast, easy, and high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
