Today that creativity turned into Roasted Red Pepper Quoina with Shrimp and Green Beans, Topped with Flounder!

  • 1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Green Beans
  • 8 0z Shrimp

  • 1/2 Chopped Red Pepper
  • Coconut Oil or Spray
  • Cajun Seasoning


  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
  2. On a separate pan bake Flounder topped with cajun seasoning till white and flakey. Roast chopped red pepper till edges brown.
  3. Boil 1 cup of water and cup quoina. (Till pot whistles, if using waterless cookwear.)
  4. Then add detailed shrimp, roated red peppers, and green beans to quoina. (and replace the lid till whistle sounds, then close value and let sit.)
