At Fremont Kid's Academy we strive to serve the most palatable and nutritious meals to the children in our care. Quinoa is a main character in many of our meals and the children love it! They have no idea that it contains nearly all of the amino acids we need, is the source of a complete protein and has many vitamins such as phosphorous, magnesium, and iron.
My favorite way to prepare it is in the following recipe.
1 cup of Quinoa Seeds
1.5 Cups chicken or vegetable broth
Combine seeds and broth, simmer for 15 minutes until soft and translucent.
3 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 TBSP chili oil (optional)
1 diced sweet potato
1/4 cups diced onions
In a large skillet combine all ingredients above until potatoes and onions are soft. Add cooked quinoa and stir until hot.
Serve immediately! Enjoy.
