  5. Remove your vegetables from the pan and place them aside in a bowl

Time saving tips:

  • Cook your quinoa the night before or at the beginning of the week. If you make more than the recipe calls for it’s an easy side to add to other meals for added protein and nutrient density. Quinoa is a gluten free grain and one of the only grains that is a complete protein.
  • Chop up your onion and bell pepper ahead of time and store them in zip lock baggies in your fridge. This will save you time when it comes time to actually cooking the meal. All you have to do is pull them out and throw them on the skillet.
  • Don’t forget to set your shrimp out at least an hour before to let them dethaw! If you forget, place them in a bowl of warm water and they will dethaw in a couple of minutes.

Hope these tips help. You can do this for many other recipes as well. As long as you think ahead, cooking can be simple and easy. Enjoy the recipe!
