What I use
1 pound Quorn meatless grounds
1 cup quinoa (bulk, not pre-bagged)
1 tbsp. cardamom
1 tbsp. curry
1 tbsp. cumin
2 cloves garlic chopped or minced
1/2 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped (or red or yellow or any combination of the 3)
olive oil (a drizzle for sautee pan)
What I did:
I cook my quinoa (rinsed) in a rice cooker with about 1/2 cup water (easy) and get that nice fluffy texture without the soggies. No rice cooker? Here's how to cook quinoa perfectly without one. On medium heat, toss meatless grounds, peppers, onions, and garlic in a pan drizzled in olive oil. You just want to lightly coat the pan so the grounds don't stick and get a bit of good fat. Since the grounds come frozen, I wait until their mostly thawed before adding the spices. Toss around for about 5 minutes. Serve over a bed of quinoa (again I leave it unseasoned since the rest is so flavorful). If you wanna add a little something extra, garnish in some freshly grated parmesan cheese (not vegan-friendly) or hit it with a splash of citrus and garnish with the rind. This should yield about 4 servings.
Happy eating veg heads!
