Garlic Spinach with Quinoa

This is a very easy side dish that qualifies both as a vegetable and a starch.  You could even use it as a stuffing.  Best of all, it is low in fat and salt, without sacrificing flavor.

1/3 C quinoa
2 C frozen spinach (still frozen)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt

1.  Combine all ingredients and 1/3 C water in a medium saucepan.  Slowly bring to a boil, which is about when the spinach is thawed.  Stir, cover, reduce heat, and simmer until water is absorbed and quinoa is cooked, about 15 minutes.  If too dry, add 2 Tb water and cook until absorbed.

Serves 2-3
