Quinoa, Peppers, Broccoli

There are a few weeks of the year when our local ethnic grocery store has all colors of bell peppers on sale for 3/$1..  This is a happy time for us, as we are able to be totally profligate and decadent in gorging ourselves with these lovelies.

I “cook” quinoa in a vacuum bottle until it is done, and then it stays warm for several hours without further cooking.  This little trick makes it easy to put together a nutritious meal like is shown above in just a few moments.

I sautéed the peppers, mushrooms, and onions in this big pan, and then added previously steamed broccoli and the quinoa so that everything heated at the same time.

There was a meat portion for each of us, but what it was escapes me at the moment.  I’m pretty sure it was roast chicken that I reheated by piling slices on top of the vegetables shown above after I took this photo.

Don’t be afraid to steam more veggies than you need for just one meal, as they reheat very well, and this process really cuts down on prep time for the second use.

    That sounds like a very filling and healthy meat. And how cheap those bell peppers are. Vegetables are never that cheap in Canada. What a shame!

    Yes, we are very lucky to have such an abundance of food at reasonable prices. I dread to think what it is going to be like when the food shortages really hit from climate change problems.
