I've been trying to find different ways to use quinoa, since it is so good for you. This recipe is from Eden Organic Foods.
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
- 1 1⁄3 cups water
- 1 -2 teaspoon hot pepper sesame oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 cup celery, chopped
- 2 cups chopped broccoli
- 1 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- Preheat oven to 350°F Roast rinsed quinoa in a skillet until it pops.
- Place in casserole dish and add water.
- Heat oil and saute onions, garlic, and curry in skillet until onions are translucent.
- Add celery, broccoli, and tomato; saute briefly and add to quinoa.
- Add soy sauce and vinegar.
- Cover casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes.
This worked out well for our family. My 2yr old nephew would not eat it but everyone else liked it and there were no leftovers. It was a bit spicier than I expected it to be with the curry spice I used as I just used plain sesame oil. This may be why my nephew didn't want to eat it. Not sure if I will make this again, but it worked for a quick dinner last night! Thanks!
This was edible but I think that flavour combination is terrible. I like the technique of baking and will try it again but the combination of the celery, broccoli and then the soy and vinegar and the curry didn't go very well. Next time I'd definately omit the celery, the soy and the vinegar and probably add peas and nuts or something.
Good recipe. Cooked well in time given. Used it at vegetarian potluck. Liked that the quinoa came out light and fluffy - not soggy or crunchy. I did make 1 change that I thought was wise. After chopping the broccoli, I separated out the small florets and tops. I reserved those and added them 15 minutes into the cooking time. Thus the broccoli tops came out less mushy. Next time I might wait 20 minutes into cooking. I will use this recipe again.
