Peppercorns,Greens & Quinoa - Oh So Easy !!

My love for Quinoa as you can see is still going strong, I am amazed at how common Quinoa has become, got quite a few recipes and ideas from friends and today is one such recipe courtesy a good friend.

Super easy to make and trust me once you try it there will be no going back, so here goes


1 cup quinoa
2 tbsp pepper corns
1 tspn freshly grated ginger
1 cup of mixed fresh greens ( coriander, spinach and fenugreek leaves are what I used , you can add your choice of greens that saute well)
pinch of turmeric (optional)
tspn cumin & coriander powder 
salt according to taste

Process
1.Lightly saute quinoa over medium heat for 1~2 minutes till the seeds get light brown.
2.Now add two cups of water to the sauteed quinoa and cook covered for about 8 minutes or until quinoa is done.
3. Remove from heat and allow to cool down, quinoa fluffs up once it cools down.
4. Heat a tbsp of oil  add freshly grated ginger, cumin & coriander powder, turmeric, peppercorns and saute for few seconds until you get a strong aroma.
5. Now add finely chopped greens and saute for 2- 3 minutes.
6. Add fluffed quinoa and salt and gently toss all the ingredients till they are mixed well.

Remove from heat and enjoy a bowl full of guilt free goodness. Sprinkle fresh lemon juice if you want too.
