We partnered with coach Ramón at Vámonos Coaching for the month of April. Here is his first recipe:
As athletes we sometimes have to be in boogie mode outside of training and raceday. Don’t let nutrition hold you back! Consider preparing quinoa next time you’re in the kitchen. It is simple to make, super nutritious, and serves as a versatile food to mix/pair with other foods. (*quinoa can be found in many bulk sections..Market of Choice, WinCo, Fred Meyer, etc.) Over the next four weeks I’ll be throwing quinoa recipes your way. Here’s one for starters!
Broccoli Quinoa Bowl
What you need:
1 cup quinoa
2 cups vegetable stock
1 cup chopped up broccoli
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups vegetable stock to a boil. Stir in the quinoa and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
2. While quinoa is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add broccoli, garlic, and maybe something else you’d like to mix in. Stir for a minute, then cover and steam over medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
3. Stir the vegetable mixture into the cooked quinoa. Finish with optional spices/toppings of your choice.
Enjoy & store the leftovers!
