Budget Friendly Recipe of the Week: Spicy Quinoa Vegetable Mix

Here’s my recipe for a great affordable healthy lunch using only a few simple ingredients. Quinoa is one of the healthiest foods: a complete protein which also contains numerous vitamins, antioxidants, and healthy fats. Take a look at my money saving recipe of the week which uses quinoa, vegetables, and a few spices! This recipe is convenient, quick, healthy, and most importantly delicious!



On the side, chop the broccoli, black olives, and onion (about 1/2 cup of the mixed veggies)

Assuming you don’t already have any of the ingredients, it will cost you about $15 to purchase all of them.However, you will have lunch for at least a week! Not bad!

This is the perfect lunch recipe for vegetarians and vegans to get in all your protein and vitamins. It is also a great gluten-free option!
