Creamy Vegetable Quinoa

Updated: Dec 13, 2020



This is a recipe that was inspired by a dish we had here in Riviera Maya! It was so good that we went back to the same restaurant the next night just to eat it again (seriously)! I don't normally cook with cream, but every once in a while it's such a yummy treat. I hope you enjoy!

  2. 1 TBSP roasted garlic, chopped

  3. 4 TBSP salted butter

  6. 1/4 TSP dried thyme

  7. 1/4 cup heavy cream, organic

  8. 2 cups white quinoa, cooked

  9. 2 TBSP fresh parmesan cheese, shredded

  10. 1 cup chopped vegetables of choice (this recipe used tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, and sun-dried tomatoes)
