Tami's Tip: Blends You Can Bag!
When it comes time to get dinner on the table, many times I default to the easiest side dish possible. This is why I decided to store the dry ingredients for this recipe in a jar on the shelf with my other canned goods, like green beans and corn. Quinoa increases the fiber and protein content of any vegetable and I can pour the jar of pre-seasoned grain into 2 cups of boiling water just as fast as I can heat up a can of green beans. Combining the 2 together makes a healthy side dish I can feel good about!
