1 cup red quinoa
2 cups water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, chopped (I prefer yellow onion)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/3 cup vegetable stock
1 cup frozen corn
1 1/2 cups frozen green beans
1. Add quinoa to 2 cups boiling water. Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer about 15 minutes. Set aside.
2. Heat olive oil in pan. Add onion and cook several minutes until just tender. Add garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add the salt, pepper, basil, and parsley. Let simmer together for several minutes.
3. Add the vegetable stock, frozen corn, and frozen green beans. Stir together and let simmer about 5-7 minutes on medium heat (until green beans are thawed through).
4. Remove from heat and mix in quinoa.
This makes a wonderful side dish. Enjoy!While the quinoa is cooking, I prepare the rest of dish so I can mix in the quinoa as soon as it's done. That way the entire dish is nice and hot when you serve.
