Instructions
Lemony Quinoa
  • I've found that different brands of quinoa call for different amounts of water. Just use the amount it says on your box of quinoa!
  • Add the quinoa, water, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt to a pot. Stir, and then bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, reduce to low heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until quinoa is cooked. When done, fluff with a fork. 
Broccoli and Chickpeas
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Wash and dry your broccoli florets. In a bowl, mix the broccoli, olive oil, minced garlic, and salt and pepper until all florets are evenly coated.
  • Rinse and dry your chickpeas. In a bowl, mix chickpeas, oil, salt, pepper, and paprika until they're all evenly coated. 
  • On a sheet pan lined with parchment paper (or a silpat), bake your broccoli and chickpeas for 25 minutes, or until broccoli is tender but still firm.
