Cheesy Broccoli Zucchini Quinoa

So this year I have made some promises to myself. I don't like to call them resolutions and I didn't make them on New Years, they were started months ago. One of them is to continue strengthening my healthy lifestyle. So with this I have been searching out inspiration for healthy, but delicious meals with protein and vegetables.

I love quinoa on it's own but I also like to experiment with it in different dishes. This is one of the dishes I have come up with. This is delicious on it's own for lunch but also good as a side.

Cheesy Broccoli Zucchini Quinoa

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1 small zucchini, shredded
1 broccoli stem, peeled and shredded
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

In a saucepan combine water and quinoa and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and simmer for 15 min until liquid is absorbed.

Toss in broccoli, zucchini and cheese and stir to combine and melt cheese.
