Directions

Try this healthy twist on a Italian classic. Vitamin C rich tomatoes give you an immune boost, and they also mix perfectly with the flavors of anti-aging basil and mood-boosting olive oil. Instead of oily mozarella, this recipe proposes the tastier feta, all spooned atop full-protein quinoa. Enjoy this any time throughout the week for a delicious and nutritious reward.

  1. Mix together chopped tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper, and cheese until combined.(2 minutes)
  2. Distribute the mixture on top of a bed of quinoa between 4 to 6 plates.(2 minutes)
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and enjoy!

Perfect if you're in a hurry.
