What's Cookin? Tomato Quinoa




Hold on to your hats folks because Stacey has gone veggie. I just love a good vegetarian meal and will occasionally add my favs to the blog. I live amongst the carnivorous so these will be in addition to my usual recipes. You will hear about the good recipes and I'll save the bad ones for the dog hee hee. Here is one that the whole family chowed on for lunch. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.

Needed:
2 cups quinoa-that has been rinsed very well
4 cups water
2 T nutritional yeast
2 T salt
1 onion-chopped
2 T basil-chopped
2 T red pepper flakes
2 garlic cloves-minced
1 jar home canned tomatoes-or 1 large can whole tomatoes from the grocery.
2 T olive oil

I sauteed my onions, garlic, and pepper flakes in 2 T of olive oil. Just long enough for the onion and garlic to get a little color to them. I then added in the tomatoes and salt. I cooked this for about 30 minutes at a low boil. For the quinoa, bring 4 cups of water to a boil, when boiling add in your quinoa and 2 T nutritional yeast. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes or until all of the water is absorbed. I then poured the quinoa into the tomato mixture. You can sprinkle a little basil on it if you care to. This meal is good for you and a quickly prepared warm lunch that your kiddos will love.
