WEll, this looks good.
.... This one is, outside of the quiona ( perhaps ), made with things you probably have in the house!
Quiona, Corn, and Potatoes - serves 6 ( I eat one fourth as a main meal, not a side dish. )
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups diced new, waxy potatoes (salad potatoes, a potato that holds it shape after cooking; I use about 400 gms. )
1.5 cups of vegie stock - I use water
1 cup uncooked quiona, rinsed
1.5 c fresh or frozen corn kernels - I used canned with no sugar added and vacuumed packed, drain any fluid which might be in the can
0.5 t dried oregano - DO NOT USE MORE
0.5 t dried tarragon - HERE ESPECIALLY DO NOT USED MORE! Estragon is powerful! It goes from "yum" to "yuck" if you add too much, trust me!
salt, to taste- - not necessary!
1.Saute´the onions and garlic in oil/water in a large skillet/ medium to large size pot ( must have a lid ) for 2 minutes ( I use water only and cook until some what limp; I also whip the garlic first at high speed into my kitchen food processor and then then the onions at a slower speed - this helps greatly with reducing the "tear factor" - and why else did I buy that appliance ??? ).
2. Add the potatoes and saute´for an additional minute ( I do this longer to, you want to coat the potatoes with the garlic/onion water mixture. ).
3. Pour/stir in the vegie stock/water, quiona, corn, oregano, and tarragon.
4. Bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover pan/pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until all of the fluid has been absorbed.
5. Add salt - never have, never will add salt - and carefully mix in the pot before serving - of course!
That's it. Now for some further comments on this dish: it is great! THIS is a super low calorie, nutritionally dense meal. I still figure out the caloric/fat/protein #'s of every dish - I use to really be into female body building for normal woman ( no beard here ) and still have problems breaking the "you got to eat this" mindset. Using 400 gms Kartoffeln/potatoes, no oil and no stock, it breaks down to around 1,200 calories, 39 gms protein, and 12 fat for the whole pot! Who could ask for any thing more? Fast, easy, yum!
I eat it as follows: Flat parsely as a salad vegie, broccoil, some salsa and lemon juice, or with broccoli and spinach instead of the parsely. Black beans pass excellent to this, too. Gabbed enough for today. I have lots of really "hot", "wild" and "delicious" dishes, no baked goods or candy-like dishes which seem to puzzle every "vegan" cook and often dominate forums.
