DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet.
  • In a food processor, coarsely grind the onions, and add to the pot.
  • Cook on a medium flame, stirring occasionally, until dark.
  • Transfer the onions to a bowl.
  • Add the quinoa, water, salt, pepper and turmeric, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to medium and cook, covered, about 15 minutes: the grain will start opening and showing tiny white points.
  • Stir in the reserved onions and the chestnuts.
  • Serve hot.
