Hot-sour quinoa

Quinoa is (they say…) a very healthy food and gluten free. I say – its specific (missing…) taste allows a lot of improvisation.

Products(for 2):

1 teacup of quinoa
200 g boiled corn
1 average tomato
1 average red onion
the juice of 1 lemon
handful of fresh coriander (or 1/2 teaspoon of dried)
1 chilly pepper(or more if you like it HOT!)
1 tbls olive oil
salt, paprika, grounded black pepper
Chop the onion and the pepper in small pieces, heat the olive oil in a pan and fry them for one minute. Add the paprika and the pepper and stir. Add the quinoa, stir again, pour 2 teacups of water, lower the heat and cover. The mixture should absorb the liquid for about 15-20 minutes, don’t forget to stir occasionally.
Meanwhile, chop the tomatoes in small cubicles and mince the coriander. When the liquid of the quinoa is almost gone add the tomatoes, the lemon juice, the coriander and the corn. Stir well, cover it, turn the heat off and let it rest for another 10 minutes.
Vegan is good and healthy!

Put the quinoa in a pot with 3,5 teacups of water and boil for 10 minutes. Add the lentils and leave until the liquid’s absorbed.
Meanwhile, remove the upper parts of the peppers and the tomatoes, empty them (keep he tomatoes) and put them a part.
When the quinoa and the lentils are ready put them in a bowl and add the finely chopped onions, garlic, chilly, mint and remains of the tomatoes, as well as all the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Stuff the tomatoes and the peppers with the mixture. Now you can either eat these as they are, or grill them for several minutes, even put them in the oven until tender.
