Butternut Brussels Quinoa

Butternut Brussels Quinoa

Prep: 2 cups cooked Quinoa

1 cup Finely Chopped Brussels Sprouts

2 cups Cubed Butternut Squash

1 tbsp Minced Garlic

1 tbsp Diced Shallot

1 tbsp Thyme

1/2 cup Pomegranate 

Cooking options:

Heat a pan - 

- spray it with a cooking spray 

- coat with 1 tbsp Avocado Seed Oil 

- add 1 inch of water and bring it to a boil 

 Add Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash and cover for 1 minute then stir and cover for another minute.  Stir in Garlic, Shallots and Thyme and cover for 2 minute. Add Quinoa and mix well! Mix in pomegranate right before you serve!  

The 3 options for cooking give you the choice of adding a chemical, an oil carcinogen or a natural steam to the dish. No matter which way of cooking it you choose the dish will turn out the same except only one of the ways of cooking adds zero negatives to the dish. If you can, I would always go with the steam fry but once in a while cooking in the other styles won't kill you. Knowing you have the options and you have the choice always makes the healthy choice the easy one for me!
