• 1 cup quinoa
• 2 cups water • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions: Rinse quinoa in a fine sieve until water runs clear. Then, drain and transfer to a medium pot. Add 2 cups water and salt and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until water is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. Set aside away from heat for about 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork. Will make 3 cups quinoa.

**Quinoa naturally has a protective coating, called saponins, that easily rinse off. However, if not rinsed, will be bitter and may cause an upset stomach.

**If you toasted quinoa in a skillet with a little olive oil over low heat for a few minutes before adding to the boiling water, it will have an even tastier, nutty flavor.

• Any Vegetable of choice, cut to bite sized pieces (Broccoli, Pepper, Cauliflower, Asparagus, Carrots, etc.) • ½ teaspoon Sea Salt (Optional)

Directions for Steaming in a Pan: Bring water to a boil in a large sauté pan.

Add salt to the water if desired. Add your vegetable of choice, cover, and then steam your veg until they are as tender as you want (about 3-5 minutes).

Directions for Steaming in a Steamer Basket: Bring an inch of water to a boil in the bottom of a pot (where you will then place your steamer basket into).

• 2-4 Sweet potatoes, rinsed & dried

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 200° Pierce each sweet potato a few times with a fork (don’t get trigger happy… it’s just to let some of the steam out).

Place the sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. That’s it!
