▢️ INGREDIENTS for Quinoa Recipes: (3 to 4 servings)

1 cup/190g Quinoa (soaked for about 30 minutes)
3 Tbsp Olive oil
1+1/2 cup 200g Onion
1+1/2 Tbsp Garlic or to taste – finely chopped
1/2 Tbsp Ginger or to taste – finely chopped
1/2 Tsp Turmeric
1 Tsp Paprika (NOT SMOKED)
1 Tsp Ground Cumin
1 Tsp Ground Coriander
1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper (Optional)
Salt to taste (I have added total 1/4 + 3/4 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt)
150g / 1 cup Carrots
130g / 1 cup Green Beans
200g / 1 cup Tomatoes – chopped
70g / 1/2 cup Frozen Green Peas
325ml / 1+1/3 cup Water OR AS REQUIRED (πŸ‘‰ Sometimes one batch of quinoa can be more dry than the other, SO ADJUST THE COOKING WATER QUANTITY ACCORDINGLY)
100g / 3+1/2 cup Spinach – LEAVES ONLY (I have added baby spinach)
Lemon juice to taste (I have added 1/2 tablespoon)
Ground Black Pepper to taste (I have added 1/2 teaspoon)

1/2 cup / 70g Cashews (Toasted)
2 Tablespoon / 5g Cilantro (Coriander leaves) – very finely chopped

▢️ METHOD:

Start by thoroughly washing the quinoa a few times until the water runs clear and then soak in water for about 30 minutes. Once the quinoa is soaked, drain the water from the quinoa and let it sit in the strainer.

To a heated pan add the cooking oil, onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Adding salt to onion will release its moisture and help it cook faster so please don’t skip it. Fry the onion on medium to medium-high heat until it just starts to brown.

Once the onion has starts, add the finely chopped garlic and ginger and fry for 30 seconds. Then add carrots, green beans and spices (Turmeric, Paprika,Ground Cumin, Ground Coriander, Cayenne Pepper) and mix well. Fry on medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the soaked quinoa, chopped tomatoes, frozen peas, salt and water to the pan. Bring it to a vigorous boil. Then cover the lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook on low heat for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked.

Once the quinoa is cooked, turn off the stove. RIGHT AWAY ADD THE SPINACH LEAVES WHILE THE QUINOA IS STILL STEAMING HOT, SO THAT THE SPINACH CAN WILT FROM THE HEAT. Along with lemon juice and ground black pepper and mix thoroughly BUT GENTLY. Top it with toasted cashews and chopped cilantro (coriander leaves). Serve hot.

▢️ IMPORTANT TIPS:

πŸ‘‰ Thoroughly wash the quinoa, this will get rid of any impurities/gunk/bitterness and will give a cleaner taste to the quinoa

πŸ‘‰ Every stove is different SO ADJUST THE HEAT AND COOKING TIME AS REQUIRED

πŸ‘‰ Adding salt to onion will release it’s moisture and will help it cook faster so please don’t skip it

πŸ‘‰ Sometimes one batch of quinoa can be more dry than the other, SO ADJUST THE COOKING WATER QUANTITY ACCORDINGLY

πŸ‘‰ After the quinoa is cooked. RIGHT AWAY ADD THE SPINACH LEAVES WHILE THE QUINOA IS STILL STEAMING HOT, SO THAT THE SPINACH CAN WILT FROM THE HEAT.
