- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 cup (50g) raw mixed vegetables, finely chopped (broccoli, carrots, bell pepper, zucchini, tomato, onion, etc.)
- 1/4 tsp. ground turmeric
- 1 cup (170g) un-cooked quinoa, any variety (rinse under cold water if not pre-rinsed)
- 2 cups (500mL) chicken or vegetable broth.
Heat oil in 1 1/2 quart saucepan over medium-high heat until oil is shimmering. Add chopped mixed vegetables and sauté, stirring continuously, until vegetables begin to soften, 3-4 minutes. Add quinoa and stir a minute or two to lightly toast the seeds. Stir in broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover pan, and simmer for 10-12 minutes until the liquid is absorbed.
