     Quinoa Primavera

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   2-3
Preptime   minimal

Ingredients
1 cup quinoa
2 cups of water
1 tbsp evoo
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 pound (about 1/2 bunch) asparagus, woody ends snapped off and discarded, spears cut into 1-inch
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup fresh peas ( I went half in-pod, half out)
1 chicken breast, cut into 6 chunks
1 cup thinly sliced baby spinach leaves
 
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tsp rosemary
2-3 slices of deli ham

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine water and quinoa in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until quinoa is tender and all the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
Rub chicken with olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Put in oven for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove and slice into smaller pieces.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and asparagus. Cook, stirring often, until asparagus is tender and bright green, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic and peas and continue cooking for another minute.
Stir in ham and cooked quinoa. Add chicken and the spinach and stir until it wilts, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
Serving Suggestions
If you have a little nooch (that's nutritional yeast for a dairy-free n00b), it tastes awesome sprinkled on the quinoa promavera at the last minute.
