Quinoa Vegi Blend

Tonight's dinner was simple, yet full of flavor.  A blend of red and light brown quinoa adds visual appeal Vegetables are fine chopped, and seasoned with fresh ginger and garlic that provide health benefits to cleanse the blood and improve the digestive tract.

Quinoa Vegi Blend

In rice cooker add:
1 ¾ water or organic vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups brown quinoa
½ c red quinoa
Set rice cooker for white rice setting. We gave an Aroma rice cooker, and you may need to experiment with the best setting for quinoa.  You may also follow package directions

On stovetop at medium low heat:
1 T. organic coconut oil, melted
½ large onion chopped fine
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 inch ginger root, minced
2 organic carrots
6-8 spears fresh broccoli
½ tsp. Herbamare seasoning

Use a food processor to quickly chop onion, carrots and broccoli until chopped fine. Saute all vegetables on stovetop until tender, medium low heat approximately 20 minutes. Turn temperature to low. Once quinoa is done, blend two together and allow flavors to marry for ten minutes. Serve.  Organic dried ginger and tamari sauce may be used to add additional flavor.

This flavorful vegan dish is excellent for the unwell, providing both protein and complex proteins with a healthy good fat. Enjoy!
