On a recent stock-the-pantry trip to Costco, DH picked up some stuffed salmon fillets. For some reason after a long day of shopping I really don't feel like cooking, so we took the easy route. He grilled the salmon while I made this easy-peasy side dish. I'm always looking for an excuse to get out my rice cooker!
It was a little weird buying brussels sprouts already off the stem, one row over from asparagus in December. The tag told me it was from California; I had my doubts, but really wanted sprouts and since I've been traveling haven't had a chance to get to the indoor winter farmer's market. So California sprouts it was.
This recipe is based on a whole bunch that I found online. I had to bring a dish to pass and there was a large bag of quinoa from Costco in my pantry just begging to be used; so I searched for various recipes and cobbled together something based on what sounded good to me.
