Ingredients:

1 cup rinsed quinoa

2 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 garlic scapes, chopped

1/2 cup fennel, chopped

2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into strips

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 zucchini, diced

1 tomato, diced

1 bell pepper diced

1 cup broccoli

1/2 cup carrots

4 ounces crumbled feta cheese

8 fresh basil leaves

1 tablespoon lime juice

Directions:

1.Bring the quinoa and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to a simmer and cover the pan. Simmer until the broth is absorbed, the quinoa is fluffy, and the white line is visible in the grain, about 12 minutes.

2.Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet; cook and stir the garlic scapes and fennel about 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken breast strips and cook until the chicken is still slightly pink in the middle, about 5 more minutes. Remove the chicken meat and set aside. Pour 2 more tablespoons of olive oil in the skillet and cook and stir the rest of your veggies, 5 to 8 minutes. Return chicken to skillet and sprinkle with feta cheese, basil leaves, and lime juice. Cook until the chicken is fully cooked and hot, about 10 more minutes. Serve over hot quinoa.

This was really good and you could omit the chicken to make a great vegetarian meal! Quinoa is really good for you and a great protein source.
