zesty quinoa with broccoli and cashews

We do not eat enough quinoa. Tonight we decided to correct this.  Often we are guilty of planning a meal around a particular animal protein putting the veggies and grains on the side.  While we always choose lean proteins (when we are not trying to impress dinner guests), we decided to spend this week putting quinoa and veggies on center stage.  Whenever I am unsure of how to prepare an ingredient my go to online resource is the Whole Foods site.  I stumbled across this recipe: Zesty Quinoa with Broccoli and Cashews. They are not kidding when they say this meal is “zesty!”  It was quite delicious and we are going to put it into our regular “rotation” for quick and nutritious week night meals.
