Bulk Cooking a la Latina

#Sunday = #BulkCooking = Guaranteed #healthymeals for most of the week. Pictured: “Latin” inspired chicken quinoa. Dice about 1lb of chicken. Cook chicken with a little olive oil and ½ onion until well done. Add 1 cup of veggie broth, ¾ cup of quinoa (I used tricolor), 1 cup drained, rinsed black beans, 1 cup of diced tomato, and 1 cup of corn. Boil for ~30 minues at low-medium heat. For garnish: avocado, lime, and A LOT of cilantro. S&P to taste. You can also add to a bed of greens, make lettuce tacos, or eat with a side of sauteed veggies. I also pureed this for Theo with a little added water.  http://ift.tt/1PrBX7M

#BulkCooking take two. Using 4 ingredients: #goldenbeet, #scallions, tricolor #quinoa, and #cannedcorn (no added ingredients). Staple ingredients: olive oil, S&P, and #EverydaySeasoning from #TraderJoes.  
Part A) Sauté scallions with a little olive oil for 3 minutes. Add the corn and sauté for 6-8 minutes or until it starts browning. Toss the quinoa (½ cup) in the mix until it starts popping. Add water (1 ¼ cup) and cook for ~12-15 minutes.  
Part B) In the meantime- roast beet. Cut to 1" pieces, coat with a little olive oil and spices. Place in the oven at 425F for about 20-25min. Make sure to mix a few times in between.  
Part C) Mix it all together and voila. Accompaniments: edamame, salad, sautéed spinach, feta, hummus, hard boiled egg, lean meat, and/or #CilantroDressing (recipe to come!) 
Cooking time: around 30 minutes!
