A Warm and Smoky Dinner
Three-quarters cup of quinoa serves as the perfect base for a savory and smoky sauté. You can use whatever meat (or veggie protein) you'd like; this recipe calls for a pound of large shrimp, but you could also swap in an equal amount of diced chicken or tofu. Whichever you choose, adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika adds instant flavor, and the quinoa will help soak up the tasty sauce.
