Flavorful Red Inca Quinoa, Millie's

Millie Johnson


The past year or so, I have been trying out foods I have not had or cooked before. We fell in love with Quinoa. This dish is full of flavor thanks to the onion, bell pepper and chicken stock !
For this recipe I used the Red Inca Quinoa, but you can use the yellow as well. Sometimes I add mushrooms and diced carrot, too. I just used what I had on hand at this time. Enjoy !

Quinoa is high in protein and can be used in place of a meat protein.

* To make this vegetarian, just use vegetable stock instead of the chicken stock.

* When serving with beef, use beef stock.
