Scrumptious Saturday: Spicy Garbanzo Beans and Quinoa

This is a what’s in my cupboard mash up…

First I heated up a tablespoon of coconut oil in a cast iron skillet.

I added some chopped fresh garlic and scallions, let that cook until transparent.

Added three small-medium carrots grated. Let that cook for a couple minutes.

Added a cut up jalepeno minus seeds.

Added 2/3 of a summer squash grated. Let that cook for a minute.

Added three heaping spoons or ladles full of cooked whole garbanzo beans. (1 1/2 to 2 cups’ish)

Covered the top with chili powder spice mix.

Added a small can of fire roasted green chilis.

Added a handful of cut up cherry tomatoes.

Added a 1/4 cup of salsa.

Meanwhile in the microwave I cooked up 1 1/3 cups of quinoa. Added about equal parts of water and nuked covered for 10 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes.

Added most of quinoa to skillet.

Grated up some cheese.

Cut up some parsley (wish I had cilantro)

Pulled out the lemon slice I have left.

Set out some sour cream.

Heat up some tortillas if you like.
