About this recipe: Onions and peppers are sautéed and simmered with quinoa and tomatoes to make a delicious wholesome vegetarian dish.
Quinoa is not a cereal, but actually a seed, originating from South America. It is especially high in protein, making it a good staple food for vegans and vegetarians.
Something else. Great recipe really tasty! Matt - 22 Jun 2011
A flavoursome family favourite. Works wonderfully as a side dish - or you can stir in some nicely spiced cooked chicken (or anything you like) to make it a complete meal. I have issues with the amount of liquid recommended, as it came out more like soup the first time I made it. I've made it quite a few times since and always add less liquid at first - you can always add more if it starts to dry out. Nearly forgot to mention that I use Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil instead of Olive Oil - it's so much healthier it borders on unbelievable! - 13 Nov 2012
This recipe is very simple, and I found using fresh basil a nice touch. To avoid a mushy quinoa, you definitely need to cut the stock down to 2 cups, but it also helps if you prep the quinoa like this: rinse it and and drain it, and then put it in a pan and dry toast until a few grains begin to pop. - 28 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
