If food were meant to be alluring, tempting and seductive, then this dish nailed those desires. As simple as it was to prepare, I am classifying this as an anytime treat – This was one of the first dishes I made with my home grown veggies, and I realize I have over 20 recipes that I need to catch up on, what with the pickling, saucing and chutney-ing of all the tomatoes growing in the garden. This dish has exactly what you see in it – veggies, quinoa, and chives blossoms for decoration. A healthy one pot meal
For this you need 2 cups of white quinoa and veggies of your choice – I used tomatoes, broccoli, bell peppers (orange and yellow), green peas, cilantro and chives blossoms and fresh sage leaves for garnish – green chilies for heating up.
Steam cook the quinoa; sautee the veggies; mix them together in a pan with the heat on – allow them to blend for 2-3 minutes and then serve hot.
