Quinoa Stew

I friend just sent this recipe to me, even though it doesnt have any beans in it, it would be great with a can tossed in there. Just drain and rinse whatever you have on hand and toss in at the end with the quinoa, though really, it doesnt need it.

For more quinoa information check out this web site

½ cup quinoa,
1 cup water
2 cups chopped onions
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 carrot, cut on the diagonal into ¼-inch thick slices
1 bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup cubed zucchini
2 cups undrained chopped fresh or canned tomatoes
1 cup water or vegetable stock
2 teaspoons ground cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
Pinch of cayenne (or more to taste)
2 teaspoon fresh oregano (OR) 1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt to taste

Cook quinoa in water until tender. Saute onion, garlic, carrot, peppers, celery, and zucchini in oil until tender. Add the remaining ingredient and cooked quinoa and simmer until heated through.


Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
Grated Cheddar OR Monterey Jack cheese (optional)
