Quinoa made Edible

I want to experiment with this idea of blogging some of my own very useful vegan hacks and I thought that the best place to start is with the mostly utterly tasteless but so nutritious  quinoa.

Most recipes call for the simple boiling of this magical legume and the only thing it can compete with in terms of tastelessness is tofu.

So, here is my quinoa hack.

I fry up onion in some olive oil (not a lot), add the quinoa, salt, pepper and sometimes even other dried herbs, and enough water to cover and then an added 10mm over the top, and add a Knorr veg stock pot. I bring it to the boil, then turn it down and let all the water absorb.

So, chop half an onion.

Fry it up in a little olive oil.

Add a cup of quinoa. (I like white, but red or black quinoa is good too)

Stir up the quinoa to coat it.

Add water to cover and a little extra (10mm).

These are the stock pots.

Bring to boil, then simmer slowly until water is absorbed and evaporated.

I don’t have more pics because I used it immediately after cooking. I made Yotam Ottolenghi’s quinoa and sweet potato salad, which is so delicious.

Please leave me feedback about this post.

Accidentally delicious Vegan Salad

Sometimes I’ve just got to blog about it. I am currently eating and blogging at the same time because I have to tell you about this morning’s accidental salad.

Quinoa left over salad (quinoa – my special recipe, diced cucumber, snap peas, spring onion, blanched green beans, basil, flat leaf parsley), shredded cabbage (my new obsession), diced avo, tablespoons of chia seeds, goji berries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, tahini, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar. So completely delicious.
