I have a friend who is moving and trying to clear out her kitchen. We decided to make dinner tonight using whatever ingredients she was trying to get rid of. The available items: quinoa, spinach, garlic, lemon, roasted red and yellow peppers (jarred in oil). Let the fun begin!

Easy. Colorful. Healthy.
