Baked Quinoa

While Jenni has an obsession with finding recipes on Pinterest, I flock to tumblr with similar purpose. Today while browsing the land of tumblr searching for Doctor Who gifs, I found myself with the insatiable need for more vegan recipes, and quickly went to the handy search feature and typed in vegan and it procured a whole plethora of delectable looking delicacies. At the end of the post is a link to the blog that I found the recipe on, I hope you enjoy and check out more of her recipes because they all looked amazing.

For this recipe you will need:

1 zucchini
5-6 Campari tomatoes
1 cup chickpeas
1 cup quinoa
2 cups veggie broth
3 cloves garlic
Little bit olive oil
Red pepper flakes

I also put in cayenne pepper, rosemary, oregano and parsley.

Start by heating oil in a pan and add the garlic, at the same time putting the veggie broth and quinoa in another pit and letting it come to a boil. When the oil is warm put in the zucchini, tomatoes and chickpeas.

About 15 minutes later the quinoa should have absorbed most of the veggie broth, with a little left in it take it off the heat and put it aside for 5 minutes covered. When the 5 minutes have past put the quinoa in with the veggie mixture and let it sit for another 5 minutes and soak up the liquid from the tomatoes and veggies.

After that put the entire mixture in a oven safe vessel and cover with cheese of your choice, we used daiya which is vegan cheddar “cheese” bake in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes.

Over all this dish was really good and I enjoyed it a lot. I would totally make I again, it was healthy, filling and totally satisfying.
