Yin & Yang Quinoa

Let’s face it, Quinoa is delicious! You can do a lot of different things with this superfood. You could have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, AND dessert! It’s amazing how versatile quinoa can be with the ingredients that you choose to cook or bake with it.

A perfect example is my Yin & Yang Quinoa recipe. Both sides are made with the same core ingredients, but there is only 1 change that makes all the difference.IMG_0863.jpg

Serving: 8-10
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Cook the entire package of Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey on a skillet until all of the meat is fully cooked and browned
    • You don’t need to grease the pan because the juices from the ground turkey should be enough
  2. Drain the ground turkey then put it back on the skillet
  3. Take the cooked quinoa and brown rice and mix it together
    • You can use already cooked quinoa and brown rice
    • I used a mixed bag of quinoa and brown rice pouch that required 90 seconds in the microwave to cook it (I used 2 pouches of mixed quinoa and brown rice)
  4. Add the mixture of cooked quinoa and brown rice to the ground turkey in the skillet
  5. On low heat, stir the quinoa, brown rice, and ground turkey until they are mixed thoroughly
  6. In 2 medium-sized bowls, separate the mixture equally
  7. In 1 bowl, add the Fire Roasted Yellow Pepper Salsa
    • Add as much as you’d like. I used enough to see the quinoa and brown rice turn a little yellow
    • The Fire Roasted Yellow Pepper Salsa is a savory salsa with it’s main ingredient of yellow pepper. No tomatoes found in this salsa! 
  8. In the other bowl, add the Piquillo Pepper & Passion Fruit Salsa
    1. Add as much as you’d like. I used enough to see the quinoa and brown rice turn a little red
    2. The Piquillo Pepper & Passion Fruit Salsa creates a sweeter, tropical taste that blends surprisingly well with the Italian seasoning from the ground turkey
  9. Serve separately or together on one plate
  10. Enjoy!
