Quinoa is a very flavorful grain and it is the most complete protein of all the grains. This dish is very unique. It will make a great addition to your dinner party. This is also spicy enough it will compliment more bland dishes like fish. Because it is such a complete protein it is an excellent vegetarian meal.

Servings: 6 to 8     Prep time: 30 min     Cooking time: 15 min
Utensils: Large skillet with lid

med onion - diced
med red pepper - diced
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 lg carrot - diced small
1 cup beef or vegetable broth
tsp sea salt
tsp pepper fresh ground
2 tab butter
tsp ground coriander
tsp celery seed
1 tab Caribbean Jerk Seasoning
tsp smoked paprika
red pepper flakes - to taste (optional)
1 cup Quinoa - pronounced (kĭ-nō'ə, kēn'w)


Rinse quinoa in strainer. In a skillet melt butter and saut onion, pepper, garlic and carrot until softened. Add beef broth and remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, add quinoa, stir, cover and turn heat off. Quinoa cooks just like rice only in half the time, about 15 min. When it has absorbed the water fluff and serve.
