Cilantro and Lime Quinoa
I am on a mission to find fresh and healthy options for our summer meals ... my boys and hubby LOVE fish, so I thought to try a light and citrus based quinoa instead of rice. Oh. My. Goodness. So good.
In a saucepan, boil and cook your quinoa- I added 2 c quinoa with 4 c chicken stock. Stir and let cook until stock is fully absorbed.
Once quinoa is cooked, place in a large bowl. Stir in 1 1/2 tbsp fresh minced garlic and 1/2 tsp fresh pepper. I sliced and juiced 4 limes and added the lime juice as well, stirring to be sure it was well incorporated. Sprinkle 1 tsp of sugar over the top and stir in. Finish by mixing in 1 c of chopped cilantro.
This paired really well with the Mahi Mahi and I can't wait to make it again as a new 'go to' side for our summer BBQs!
