Vegetable Savoury Quinoa and Delicious Dishes Made at the CUTCO Event

Savoury Qunioa, Kale orange salad and Fruit salad
I have been a fan of CUTCO for several years, so I had a wonderful time learning more about CUTCO knives at the #foodiesforever event in Toronto. I learned about different types of knives, its specific uses and knife skills at the event, while preparing and enjoying a healthy delicious meal.
Some of the things I learned about kitchen knives are that dull knives can be dangerous as it makes us put pressure when cutting, which is more likely to get us hurt. Also, wooden knife handles are porous and are prone to splintering. 
These things are not a problem with CUTCO, as their knives are sharp and have a forever guarantee to keep them always sharp. The comfortable thermo-resin CUTCO knife handles are dishwasher-safe, which keeps them clean and good as new.
We made this delicious Savoury Quinoa at the event, which I tried at home as well. This easy to make healthy meal was also enjoyed by everyone in my family.

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1 vegetable cube
1 carrot
1 zucchini
1 tbsp coconut oil
salt and pepper optional

Cut the carrot and zucchini into cubes and leave it aside. Heat the oil in medium heat and sauté the carrots and zucchini for 1 to 2 minutes. Then add the quinoa with the water and vegetable cubes. Let the quinoa cook in low heat covered for about 20 to 25 minutes. Let the cooked quinoa sit for about 5 minutes and serve it warm.
