Super easy E dinner! But why is it so easy? If you have the ingredients prepped in advance, you can pull the cooked quinoa from the freezer, the chopped onions from the freezer, the chopped peppers from the fridge, the cooked protein from the fridge. Open some cans. Add seasonings. Combine. Dinner is ready.
