We're off to slow, but good start. Got lots of feedback, but not many recipes in the first week. No worries, Rob G. of Manhattan sent in a quinoa recipe and a $15 Pay Pal donation to boot - and wow I haven't even cooked anything yet! Thanks, Rob! It's funny because I think I've cooked quinoa like once (much to my dismay pronounced keen-wah not quin-o-a). But as I said, I'm up for a challenge so I thought I'd give it a go.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried quinoa
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 2  garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground tumeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp (or more) fresh parsley

Preparation

  1. Soak quinoa in water for 5 minutes (this is only to get the bitterness out; use stock later-see below); drain and rinse. (be careful draining here, you need a fine sieve or the quinoa will go right down the drain).
  2. Meanwhile heat EVOO over medium-low heat in medium pot. Add onion and garlic and saute lightly for 5 minutes or so or until onion becomes a bit translucent.
  3. Add all the dried herbs and spices (thyme through bay leaf), incorporate and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Bring heat up to medium and add quinoa. Toast for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add stock and bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low/low and simmer covered for 20-30 minutes until liquid has absorbed.

    Wow, this quinoa recipe was delicious. I haven’t been the biggest fan of quinoa, but the trick (that I’ve now discovered, thanks to you), is to soak the quinoa. Thank you!
