The other quinoa recipe we put up has been quite successful in the stats department, so, here is another quinoa recipe. This is inspired by a recipe by my French brother-in-law (Monsieur Janela). I added the vegetables I had in the fridge but feel free to improvise.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups water
- 1 tbs oil
Put the quinoa in a bowl and add some water. Rub the quinoa with your fingers. Drain water. I use a straining colander when draining the water. Repeat, just to make sure it is well cleaned.
In a medium sized pan, add oil and cleaned quinoa. Toast for several minutes and then add water and salt. Cover and after it bowls reduce heat. Its just like cooking rice at this point.
- 1-2 onions
- 2 carrots
- 1/4 cauliflower
- 250 gr. mushrooms in big pieces
- 350-400 gr. sour cream or creme fraiche (sour cream).
- 1 can of tuna
- curry powder to taste
- salt & pepper
Cook for 2-3 minutes. By this time the quinoa should be about done. Either mix quinoa and curry together or serve the curry over quinoa.
We did not know if this was French, Andean, Southeast Asian, American or what? So we have to open the “international recipe” category.
