Based on my healthy skillet dishes, here’s a main dish we really enjoyed last week. Both satisfying and easy, I know most people would love it.
- 2 pounds grass-fed ground beef
- 1 medium onion or 2 small onions, diced
- 4 cups soaked, cooked and cooled quinoa*
- 2 to 3 teaspoons sea salt, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
Brown the ground beef in a deep skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Leave it pretty chunky (that’s our preference; you can chop it up to smithereens if you want).
Add the diced onions and let them saute in all the yummy beef juices.
Add the cooked quinoa, salt, pepper, and basil. Mix without smushing up the quinoa. Let it all come to a warm temperature.
Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve.
To add a yummy touch, put a bit of shredded goat cheese on top of each person’s serving.
*To cook quinoa, follow these instructions.
