Quinoa and Saute Vegetables

This week's main ingredient is Quinoa.  It is very easy to prepare.  I will post several recipes with this delicious and nutritive grain.  You can pair this dish with fish or chicken or nothing at all.

Last night  we ate it with fish.

Are you ready? 


  • 1 cup of dry Quinoa
  • 2 cups of vegetable stock (water is fine)
  • 1/2 pound mixed vegetable (it could be store bought)
  • 1/2 onion 
  • 1 garlic glove
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 3 tsp canola oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Cook the Quinoa in the rice cooker as you would cook rice.  
  2. Meanwhile on a frying pan saute onion, peppers and garlic, add the sage and cumin and vegetables and cook until vegetables are al dente.  Set aside. 
  3. Once Quinoa is ready set it in a serving bowl, add the saute vegetables and mix well.  
This can be eaten warm or cold.  Last night my family went for seconds.

Buon Appetito!
