Description

This recipe hits a lot of the right notes: quick (ready in 30 minutes), simple (one pan), and healthy (quinoa, ground turkey, beans, hello!). We love this recipe and make it about once a month! The leftovers reheat well if you hold the toppings until serving, which makes for an awesome weekday lunch. We top it with all our favorite taco toppings and some crunched up chips.

  • 1 cup Uncooked Quinoa
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
