Angie and I have been experimenting with a variety of quinoa recipes lately and absolutely loving it! It’s a great alternative to brown or basmati rice and oats, which are staples in my diet. One of the big benefits is that it’s gluten free, which is great for our fellow Fat Loss Quickie friends who have an intolerance or allergy to gluten.
Here are the ingredients in this recipe that Angie created recently:
1 cup Quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves
2 Tsp crushed chillies
1 Tsp cumin
1 Tsp black pepper
1 Tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup cilantro
Soak quinoa for 3-5 minutes, then rinse.
Bring quinoa, vegetable broth, crushed chillies, cumin, and black pepper to a boil. Then simmer for 30 minutes.
While the quinoa is simmering, fry up the onion and garlic in a little bit of olive oil.
After 30 minutes, add the onion-garlic mix, the corn, and cilantro to the quinoa and let simmer for 5 minutes.
That’s it… Enjoy!

Of course, you don’t need to add the corn and you can cook it in water instead of vegetable broth if you wish.
