Chorizo & Spinach Quinoa

Happy Friday! Today I am going to share one of JC's favorite dishes with you: Chorizo & Spinach Quinoa.

Ingredients: (serves 1 hungry crossfitter)

1/2 cup cooked Quinoa
1 small chorizo,  sliced
1 cup fresh spinach
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
Pepper to taste
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

In a small pan over high heat, cook onions and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add chorizo, cook about 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add mixture to cooked quinoa. Add pepper to taste. 

It's a super easy and quick dish to make! Perfect for the weekends, when the kids and I pig out on pizza and he wants something a little healthier!
