Recipe of the Week

Turmeric Quinoa
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 onion
2 gloves of garlic, minced
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1/2 cup Quinoa- prewashed

Heat oil in pan, add onion and garlic, cook until soft. Add chicken broth, bring to a boil. Add turmeric and quinoa, bring back to a boil then put heat on low and simmer for 20 minutes or until quinoa is fluffy. Yes, More of the super grain that I like. I tried this last night with salmon, It was a GREAT compliment. Don't forget a side salad! Turmeric is a spice that is used in curry and it gives table mustard that bright yellow color! It is from the Curcuma longa plant and has a mild orange and ginger fragrance. It has a warm, peppery, bitter flavor. It is commonly used as a powerful anti inflammatory in Chinese and Indian medicine. Pick some up at Whole Foods!! Trainer Todd
