Key ingredients

Quinoa

A serving of quinoa gets you 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and a good source of both iron and zinc.

Butternut Squash

The quintessential fall vegetable, a serving of butternut squash is rich in vitamin A, which is an antioxidant that also helps maintain vision and eye health.

Amaranth

Amaranth is considered a “pseudocereal,” which are seeds that are nutritionally similar to and eaten like grains. Amaranth is a complete protein (it contains a good balance of all nine essential amino acids), is rich in magnesium, and makes a good source of iron and fiber.

Parsley

Commonly used in Mediterranean cooking, parsley is a leafy green herb with a fresh, mildly peppery taste.

Chia Seed

Two tablespoons of chia seeds offers 5 grams of plant protein, 10 grams of fiber and a good source of iron, zinc, and calcium. To top it off, chia seeds contain an essential type of fat: omega-3 fatty acids, specifically alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

Lemon

Lemon juice adds a burst of acidity and citrus flavor. The juice of one lemon provides a rich source of antioxidant vitamin C.
