Curried Red Quinoa Recipe

1 cup red quinoa (rinsed and drained)
1 small white onion, finely chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tbs olive oil
2 cups broth (I used mushroom, but veggie and chicken would also work.)
1 tbs curry powder
1 tbs chili powder

In a 3 quart sauce pan heat 2 tbs oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the rinsed quinoa and toast for 5 minutes.

Add 2 cups of broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling stir in the curry and chili powder. Turn down to a simmer and cover, cooking for 25 more minutes. After this the quinoa should be tender and the liquid absorbed.

I work in Boston at an online retail company called Wayfair.com. I work within the Order Processing department, trying to stop fraudulent orders among other tasks. My company has a large catalogue of kitchen items, which has been both helpful (to my cooking) and detrimental (to my wallet). I am a self taught cook, learning mostly from watching cooking shows and doing trial and error within my own kitchen. I am making this blog as a way to share ideas and successes, as well as curb boredom in my small apartment. In my spare time besides cooking, I like to read, take pictures and have fun with my friends. I am also trying to learn more about wine and hopefully that will eventually be incorporated within the blog as well.
