Spanish Quinoa


  • 1 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup Eden Red Quinoa, washed and drained
    or white Eden Quinoa
  • 28 ounces Eden Whole Tomatoes with Basil, drained, chopped, and reserve tomato cooking liquid
    or plain Eden Whole Tomatoes
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder, or to taste
  • 1 tsp ground cumin, optional
  • 1/2 tsp Eden Sea Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water, including reserved tomato and bean cooking liquid

Drain tomatoes, chop, and place tomato cooking liquid in a measuring cup. Drain the beans and combine with the tomato liquid. Add enough cold water to equal 1 1/2 cups liquid and set aside.

Heat oil and sauté the onions and garlic until translucent. Stir all remaining ingredients. Add the measured liquid, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to medium-low and cook 15 minutes or until liquid is gone. Remove from the flame and let sit, covered for 5 minutes. Mix and serve.
