First of all, wash Quinoa thoroughly using a fine mesh. Soak it for 10 to 15 minutes.
During this time, chop veggies. I used carrots, beans, red pepper, yellow pepper, tomatoes, broccoli, jalapenos and olives.
Now boil it. To boil it, take an equal quantity of water as Quinoa. Like here Since I have taken 1/2 cup Quinoa so take 1/2 cup water only. Pressure cook it for one whistle. When pressure settles down, open the PC and your Quinoa is ready.
In the meantime, in a wok, heat oil and saute beans and carrots on high flame for a while, till slightly cooked.
Thereafter, add peppers, broccoli. Again saute for 2 to 3 minutes.
Then add boiled tomatoes, Jalapenos and Olives.
Lastly, mix in boiled Quinoa. Add salt, pepper and oregano. Toss nicely. Add parsley or cilantro.
At the time of serving, warm it up. Sprinkle Pine nuts or almonds or any other nuts.
Serve with love, soup optional.
