Quinoa Seitan Vegetable Stew Recipe


Quinoa Seitan Vegetable Stew


This recipe is simple and quick to make…. a sure win! Warm, filling and so so so good for you.

Things you’ll need:

Quinoa, Veggies, Seitan, garlic, olive oil, salt pepper, veggie broth, seasonings of your choice.

First things first: Rinse the Quinoa well and soak for 10 minutes and drain. To cook the Quinoa, take 1 cup quinoa and 1 1/2 cups cold water. Then,

  1. Drain quinoa well in the strainer, transfer to the cooking pot, add 1 1/2 cups water & 1/2 tsp salt if desired
  2. Bring to a boil, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and turn the heat down to simmer
  3. Cook for 15 minutes
  4. Remove quinoa from heat and allow to sit five minutes with the lid on
  5. Fluff quinoa gently with a fork

Take your Seitan, cut into bit sized pieces and sear both sides in a pan with olive oil. You may add Braggs (soy sauce, Worcestershire) if you want. This will take about 5 minutes.

Then, cut up what ever veggies you have into bit sized pieces. Heat olive oil in a pan and add veggies and garlic.

In a few minutes, add some water or veggie stock. Just a bit and cover with a lid. Cook for about 3 minutes and turn off heat.

Prepare veggie broth on your stove. Add quinoa, seitan and veggie mixture to the soup… you may add any seasons you like.. salt and pepper, for me, is a must.

Hearty, yummy and warm!

Please enjoy.. I added saltines cracks with ours. please be as creative as you can when making this. Add whatever seasonings you want to the quinoa and the soup. You can add green onions on top for a nice spicy touch!

Perfect Pop-Corn Everytime

too hot to go outside…

so let pop some pop-corn…

Ingredients:

* 3 Tbsp canola oil
* 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
* 1 3-quart covered saucepan
* Salt to taste

Directions:

Heat the oil in a 3-quart saucepan on medium high heat.

Put 3 or 4 popcorn kernels into the oil and cover the pan.

When the kernels pop, add the rest of the 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in an even layer. Cover, remove from heat and count 30 seconds.

Return the pan to the heat. The popcorn should begin popping soon, and all at once. Once the popping starts in earnest, gently shake the pan by moving it back and forth over the burner. Try to keep the lid slightly ajar to let the steam from the popcorn release (the popcorn will be drier and crisper). Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat, remove the lid, and dump the popcorn immediately into a wide bowl.
