Quinoa Meal 2: Blackened chicken with cilantro quinoa

Our second quinoa meal used quinoa in the more traditional sense: as a side dish in its true seed-like form.

We discovered the recipe combo from Sarcastic Cooking and followed it for the most part. A friend of ours went to Jamaica recently and brought back some jerk seasoning. Brandon loves it (it’s a little spicy for me, but I can handle it once in a while) so he jumped at the chance to use it during Quinoa Week. He handled the grill and I took care of the cilantro quinoa and the kale. I opted against the avocado cream, but made the quinoa as the recipe suggested and voila! It was fantastic!
