Lemon Quinoa with Broccoli

Quinoa has been something I’ve been cooking more and more with lately.  It’s healthy, filling and delicious. I like how versatile it is. Cold salads, casseroles, side dish, main dish.  Anything. 

I love everything about this lemon quinoa dish. Love the lemony taste. Love the sunflower seeds. Love how filling it was. Did I say that I loved this? I ate more than I had planned to, I couldn’t stop. At least I can say that with a nice healthy meal like this rather than a bag of doritos, right?
