    1 cup Quinoa
    1/2 tbsp Oil
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 tsp Cumin
    1/2 tsp Coriander
    1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
    1/2 tsp Oregano
    2 cloves garlic, minced (or 5-6 cloves roasted garlic, minced)

Makes 6 servings as a main dish.

Rinse quinoa well. Add to pot with two cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook 15 - 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add spices and saute until fragrant (~1 minute). Add garlic and saute another minute or so. Add beans with some liquid and simmer liquid. Add limas and corn; return liquid to a simmer. Add red wine and cook 5 - 7 minutes. Add pepper to taste.

Add in cooked quinoa and stir well. Add tomatoes. Turn off heat and cover. Let pan sit several minutes to lightly cook the tomatoes.

Mix in soy sauce and serve warm. Alternatively, portion quinoa mixture and add in soy sauce to each serving to taste.

  • I didn't have Lima beans so substituted green peas. I used Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce. Delicious and satisfying recipe. Will definitely be making this one again -- will let the quinoa go a little drier though. - 2/20/16

  • I bought some whole quinoa for breakfast cereal, since I like the flour so much. But I found it didn't work well for that. I'm looking forward to trying the quinoa with this savory recipe. I tried your BBQ Lentil Crunchies recipe, it was great, so I trust your judgment. - 7/21/08
