▶️ INGREDIENTS for quinoa Recipes: (3 to 4 servings)
Salt to taste (I have added total 1/4 + 3/4 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt)
325ml / 1+1/3 cup Water OR AS REQUIRED (👉 Sometimes one batch of quinoa can be more dry than the other, SO ADJUST THE COOKING WATER QUANTITY ACCORDINGLY)
100g / 3+1/2 cup Spinach - LEAVES ONLY (I have added baby spinach)
Lemon juice to taste (I have added 1/2 tablespoon)
Ground Black Pepper to taste (I have added 1/2 teaspoon)
2 Tablespoon / 5g Cilantro (Coriander leaves) - very finely chopped
Start by thoroughly washing the quinoa a few times until the water runs clear and then soak in water for about 30 minutes. Once the quinoa is soaked, drain the water from the quinoa and let it sit in the strainer.
To a heated pan add the cooking oil, onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Adding salt to onion will release its moisture and help it cook faster so please don’t skip it. Fry the onion on medium to medium-high heat until it just starts to brown.
Once the onion has starts, add the finely chopped garlic and ginger and fry for 30 seconds. Then add carrots, green beans and spices (Turmeric, Paprika,Ground Cumin, Ground Coriander, Cayenne Pepper) and mix well. Fry on medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the soaked quinoa, chopped tomatoes, frozen peas, salt and water to the pan. Bring it to a vigorous boil. Then cover the lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook on low heat for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked.
Once the quinoa is cooked, turn off the stove. RIGHT AWAY ADD THE SPINACH LEAVES WHILE THE quinoa IS STILL STEAMING HOT, SO THAT THE SPINACH CAN WILT FROM THE HEAT. Along with lemon juice and ground black pepper and mix thoroughly BUT GENTLY. Top it with toasted cashews and chopped cilantro (coriander leaves). Serve hot.
👉 Every stove is different SO ADJUST THE HEAT AND COOKING TIME AS REQUIRED
