Glut Sauce with Quinoa

I absolutely love tomato glut sauce. It’s so fresh flavored, even right out of the freezer. My old buddy Kornberg loves it also, and has been a bit more creative with it than I am. So I’m stealing this from her.

Glut sauce is, of course, amazing with pasta; my favorite is ravioli. At the same time, I don’t always want all those carbs on my thighs. Solution? Quinoa! If you’ve been living under a rock, quinoa is a tiny seed that was one of those trendy super foods a few years ago. It’s delicious and healthy, and cooks quickly. You can buy it at most grocery stores, and even Costco. It’s a staple in my pantry because it’s so easy to throw in a pot, then throw some stuff on top, and BLAM! Dinner! If you have some glut sauce already made, dinner is even easier!

For this particular dish, I browned some ground turkey, then threw glut sauce one top and cooked it for awhile. I cooked the quinoa at the same time, then did this:

A little Parmesan on top, and it was fantastic! You can also use ground beef (browned and drained), or lentils (thoroughly cooked). I hate writing these blog posts after the food is already gone. It was so good, I want it in my mouth again, right now!
