Quinoa, Queen of Seeds

I am loving Quinoa at the moment! With it’s bitey texture, nutty flavour  and bold nutritional qualities, quinoa has made it’s way into my pantry and into my heart. This ancient seed is one of my favourite ingredients to cook and eat.  I could probably eat this baby every day I enjoy it so much.

Not only is it delicious but it’s also a great source of protein, of minerals such as zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium and iron.

You can enjoy it as a sturdy brunch dish, a substantial lunch or a simple supper.

Quinoa and stir fried veg

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • Quinoa
  • Half a red onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 4 small runner beans
  • 1 carrot
  • Turmeric, cumin & soy sauce
  • Himalayan salt to season
  • Tahini

 

Place quinoa in a sauce pan with double the amount of water  and allow to cook for about 15 minutes. In the meantime, chop all the veg up. Whisk the egg in a bowl. Add a splash of olive oil to a wok and pour in the egg. Let it cook without stirring like an omelette then remove from pan.

Add in onion first, when they start to get golden add in the garlic. Stir in for about 1 minute. Add your turmeric and cumin, stir in thoroughly. Add carrots and beans. By this point your quinoa will be ready and will have absorbed the majority of the water. Add it to the wok, add the chopped up omelette with a dash of soy sauce, giving all a good old stir. Season with Himalayn salt, scoop into a bowl and drizzle over some tahini.  Delicious, nutritious and so easy.
