If food is meant to be alluring, tempting and seductive, then this dish nailed those desires. As simple as it was to prepare, I am classifying this as an anytime treat - This was one of the first dishes I made with my home grown veggies, and I realize I have over 20 recipes that I need to catch up on, what with the pickling, saucing and chutney-ing of all the tomatoes growing in the garden. This dish has exactly what you see in it - veggies, quinoa, and chives blossoms for decoration. A healthy one pot meal and a wonderful alternative to rice - so if you have some veggies around and quinoa in your pantry, whatchya waiting for.
  • For this you need
  • 1.5 cups of yellow Quinoa
  • veggies of your choice - I used
  • tomatoes,
  • broccoli,
  • bell peppers (orange and yellow),
  • green peas,
  • cilantro
  • chives blossoms and fresh sage leaves for garnish -
  • green chilies for heating things up.
  • 1table spoon of olive oil for sauteeing
  1. Steam cook the quinoa; sautee the veggies; mix them together in a pan with the heat on - allow them to blend for 2-3 minutes and then serve hot.
