Quick Lunch Series: Quinoa with Sauted Vegetables

I have been taking this for lunch on and off the last few days and believe me it was tasty, nutritional  and most importantly I enjoyed it. Unfortunately I did not take any photographs! But here’s how I made it.

1/4 cup quinoa cooked per directions
1-2 mini tri colored peppers sliced
1/8 of red onion sliced
1/4 zucchini sliced
1-2 yellow locally grown yellow tomato or 6-8 heirloom mini tomatoes
salt and crushed red pepper or fresh black pepper to taste
some lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil


Cook quinoa as per instructions. Typically bring 1/2 to 3/4 cup water of water to boil, add 1/4 cup quinoa and cook till all water evaporates and the quinoa looks cooked.

Bring 1 tbsp oil to boil in a pan. Add sliced red onion, sliced peppers,zucchini and chopped tomato to fry. Fry 5-10 min till the moisture evaporates. Add salt and red crushed pepper and saute for 5-10 minutes. Add cooked quinoa and some lemon juice. Mix well.

Serve warm. Or re-heat in microwave for that office day meal.
