Talk about protein packed meals. Not only do you get lots of protein in this dish, you also get Omega-3s with the salmon, and nutrient-packed arugula. Quinoa is protein-rich and is a complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Here are the many health benefits of Quinoa.
At Costco, I found this Red Quinoa + Brown Rice blend by Village Harvest. This blend is great for those who are new to Quinoa yet familiar with brown rice. Cooking is simple. Just pop into microwave, heat, and eat.
For the salmon, I simply baked a 1-1/2 serving size piece (about 5.5 oz) with some Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Next time, I'd like to try Soy Vay's Wasabi Teriyaki. That would be a nice kick!
The arugula is from bagged organic arugula from Trader Joe's. I simply massaged the arugula with some of Brianna's Blush Vinaigrette.
There you go, a simple, fast protein and nutrient rich meal.
