The original recipe was double of what I have submitted,


1. Place drained and rinsed quinoa in a medium-size sauce pan (Optional rice cooker) with 1 cup water and cook over medium to low heat for about 15 minutes.
2. While quinoa is cooking, sauté onion for about five minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
3. Next, add all of the ingredients to the pot (minus the corn and quinoa) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and allow simmering for twenty minutes.
4. Once quinoa is done cooking, drain any excess liquid and add it and the corn to the pot. Simmer for a few minutes so that everything is hot and serve immediately.
