Quinoa with vegetables


1 cup quinoa
1 1/4 cup water
1 soup cube vegetable or chicken*
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 to 1/4 cup beans
1/4 cup celery
1/4 cup cabbage
1/4 tsp chillie powder to taste
salt is not necessary as the soup cube as salt

Rinse and drain the quinoa using a sieve.

Boil the water add the soup cube, then add the washed quinoa. Quinoa swell more than double its amount when cooked so put in a big pan. Simmer in low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes until it is cooked and water evaporates. It will be soft, use a fork and fluff the quinoa before stir frying.
* I used maggie soup cube, can replace the water with stock so it is the correct measurement.

Heat oil add the vegetables and chillie powder if using and stir fry until it is cooked to preference. Add the cooked quinoa and toss to blend with the flavours. Serve hot.
