Put Leftovers to Use: Hawaiian Quinoa

23 Apr

So today I had leftover pineapple chunks from my afternoon salad. Instead of just throwing them out or eating them plain, I decided to use them to snaz up my dinner–and created a lovely recipe while doing so!

-1/2 cup quinoa
-1 cup water
-1 zucchini 
-1/2 small can pineapple chunks (drain the juice)
-1-2 TB olive oil
-cajun seasoning
-drizzle of soy sauce or hawaiian seasoning to taste 
1. Boil quinoa then let simmer for about 10 minutes covered (or until water is drained)
2. In the meantime, stir fry the zucchini and pineapple with olive oil
3. Add in the quinoa and top with the cajun seasoning and soy sauce 
Enjoy : )
