Lidia's Sopa de Quinoa - Quinoa Casserole

Category: Main Dishes - Other

Suitable for a: vegetarian diet



1 Tbsp butter

3 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 medium yellow onion chopped

3-4 cloves garlic pressed or minced

1/2 cup diced bell pepper

8 oz green peas (I use frozen)

1/2 tsp ground chili

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cumin

1 cup water

2 cups pre-cooked quinoa

8 oz tomato paste

14 oz jack cheese

ground pepper to taste



Pre-heat oven to 350

Heat vegetable oil in a sauce pan. Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, chili, salt and cumin and saute until the vegetables are limp (about 5 minutes.)

Add tomato sauce, water and peas then bring to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes

Butter oven pan and spread the pre-cooked quinoa in the pan. Pour the prepared sauce over the quinoa and then spread the cheese over the top. Heat in oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Additional comments:


I have reprinted the recipe as I originally got it. One can leave out the cheese and I do not use any butter in the pan. I also sometimes use more than 2 cups of quinoa, I think it depends on how saucy you want your casserole.
