Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked white quinoa rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups chicken stock*
  • 250 gr chicken breast cut in very small cubes
  • 500 gr spinach
  • 1 leek only the green parts*
  • 100 gr cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 Tbsp garlic-infused oil*
  • salt & pepper according to taste
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • TOPPINGS SUGGESTIONS:
  • Coconut yogurt it goes very well
  • Chopped hazelnuts or walnuts
  • Dried cranberries*
  • Pumpkin seeds

Instructions

  • Add the rinsed quinoa in a pan with the vegetable broth and cook it for 15 to 20 min.
  • While the quinoa cooks, preheat a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot add the garlic-infused oil and leek. Sauté for 3min.
  • Once they start to caramelize, add the chicken cubes and sauté for another 5-8 min, stirring frequently.
  • When the chicken starts to soften, add the cherry tomatoes and sauté for another 5 min.
  • Lower the heat and add the spinach. Cook for 5 to 8 min. Season all with salt and pepper.
  • Once all cooked, combine the veggies and the quinoa.
  • Add any preferred toppings.
  • And enjoy
  • Best when fresh, however, it keeps covered in the fridge up to 2 days.

Notes

1.Choose a stock that is gluten-free and does not contain onion or garlic.
2.Only the green part of the leek is low FODMAP, so make sure you buy the one with long green tips.
3.If you are buying garlic infused oil, make sure that there aren't floating bits of garlic in it. You can also easily make your own garlic infused-oil by frying garlic cloves in oil, when they are golden and soft you need to remove them from the oil and continue cooking your meal. (This is a low FODMAP way to get the garlic flavor in your meals, as the fructans can't leach into the oil.)
4.Dried cranberries are high fodmap, to stay in the safe side don't have more than 15g per serving
