Ingredients

    1 medium onion, diced
    2-4 cloves of garlic, minced
    1 medium eggplant, diced large
    2 medium zucchini, sliced or diced
    1 28oz can stewed tomatoes, drained, juice reserved
    .25 cup quinoa
    2 tablespoons mixed Italian seasoning - or -
    1 tablespoon each of basil and oregano
    salt to taste
    crushed red pepper to taste

Directions

Chop and saute the garlic and onion briefly in a drop of olive oil. Dice the eggplant and zucchini and place in a LARGE microwaveable casserole dish with a cover with the quinoa, topping them with the sauteed onion and garlic. Separate the tomatoes from the juice in the can and add them to the casserole. (The veggies give up their juices while cooking and can make a mess.) Save the juice to add back in later or to add to soup. Cover the dish and nuke on HIGH for 25-30 minutes. When done, stir in the herbs, salt and as much of
the reserved tomato juice as you like, and re-cover for 5-10 minutes. Makes about six one-cup servings, depending on the size of the eggplant and squash.

P.S. - add the leftovers to broth, hot sauce and pasta and have a killer soup!
