In the mean time cook quinoa just like you cook Rice, two measurements of water for one of quinoa. Wash quinoa in at least 3 changes of water, rubbing grains and letting them settle before pouring off water, until water runs clear. Drain in a large sieve. Add quinoa to a separate pot of boiling salted water and cook 10 minutes, bottom layer of water vaporises. Move quinoa with a fork and then bring the stove to a low heat and cover it with a lid.

Serve the quinoa and then decorate with the veggies or if you preffer, add the quinoa into the sauce pan (or wok) with the veggies and mix them all for a minute. Top it with parsley and avocado squares leaves for taste and decoration. Add salt and pepper. If you like spicy food add chilli flakes.

Broccoli and Pepper Brown Spaguetti

I love pasta! I think I have some Italian in me. Last year I was fortunate to spend one month in Italy, and yes, I ate pasta everyday 🙂 It was a dream come true LOL. When I was a kid I asked for pasta every day and my father said that it was unhealthy to eat so much pasta, crying and upset I use to run into my room and shouted “I should have been born in Italy, italian kids eat pasta every day”.

Well now a days we eat pasta twice o three times a week, and we prefer brown organic kind or sometimes gnocchi.

I prepared with the veggies that I had in my fridge:

– broccoli
– sweet peppers
– 1 clove of garlic

Using olive oil, stir fried them on a medium heat.

Boil the water add a bit of sea salt and olive oil. Add Biona Organic Brown Pasta to cook for 5 mins.

Strain the pasta when “Al-dente” not so soft neither hard. Place it on a bowl and add olive oil (2 table spoons per serving)

Serve the veggies on top of the Spaghetti.

Add parmegiano reggiano you eat dairy
