I love quinoa and I wanted to make something that was flavorful and filling. The vegetables can be changed to your liking!

Quinoa with Veggies

makes 4 servings
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Instructions:

Bring the quinoa, water, and 1 pinch of salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes. Once done, drain a mesh strainer, and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic softens and the aroma mellows, about 2 minutes. Add the red pepper, and corn; continue cooking until the pepper softens, about 5 minutes. Season with cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper, and cook for 1 minute more, then stir in the cooked quinoa and green onions. Serve hot or cold.
