Recipe

One of the meatless meals I make the most often is quinoa bowls or skillets packed with veggies. Not only are they simple and nutritious, they are packed with flavor when you add herbs, fresh citrus juice, and fresh veggies. For this simple quinoa skillet, I love the combination of summer squash, cherry tomatoes, corn, and basil. Everything comes together with a touch of olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and Parmesan cheese to make a delicious dish. You could substitute zucchini, canned diced tomatoes, and any fresh herbs depending on what you have on hand. You can also add some extra protein and fiber by adding chickpeas or white beans to the mix.
