Delicious! The quinoa really absorbs all the spices in this recipe and the chickpeas are a welcome addition. Feel free to use different beans if you want! This recipe came from Veganomicon.

This is a yummy recipe, spices very good. Next time I will add more veggies for texture/flavor, or to make more of a main dish.

Directions

  1. In a small stockpot over medium heat, saute the onions in olive oil for about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 2 more minutes.
  2. Add the tomato paste, coriander, cumin, black pepper, and salt; saute for another minute.
  3. Add the quinoa and saute for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the chickpeas and broth; cover and bring to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling, lower the heat to very low, cover, and cook for about 18 minutes, or until the quinoa has absorbed all the water; stir occasionally.
  5. Fluff with a fork and serve.
