I do not like Spanish Rice using Brown rice (and we don't eat white rice) so I came up with this recipe. It is so yummy! Onions would also be a good addition. If you make and modify, I'd love to know how yours turned out.
3/4 cup Quinoa (rinsed numerous times)
1 15 ounce can of dice tomatoes blended
2-3 garlic cloves minced
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
Blend canned or fresh tomatoes in a blender to remove chuncks (my preference)
Add water to tomatoes so you have 1 1/2 cups liguid (tomatoes + water)
Add well rinsed quinoa, water/tomato mixture and garlic to a sauce pan and heat to boiling
Lower heat & simmer for 15-20 minutes until the liquid is absorbed
Add remaining ingredients & salt to taste.
