Tropical Quinoa (Ww)
40 mins (prep 15, cooking 25)
11 ingredients
6 servings
This was delicious as a side with fish (tilapia with peanut-coconut sauce), but I think it will also be wonderful with chicken. Although my non-weight watchers family members enjoyed this too, if you are following the WW flex plan this is 3 points/serving but this is also a Core Food.
