Quinoa is a GoSun favorite due to its speed of cooking compared to rice and its high protein base, perfect for steamed veggies. Throw them all together and you get a well balanced delicious yet nutritious meal for two!
 
Yield: 2 Servings
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 55 Minutes
 

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1.5 Cups Chopped Vegetables (We used Shallots, Bell Peppers, and Broccoli chopped to .5 inch or smaller pieces) 
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Cilantro

  • .5 Cup Quinoa

  • 1 Cup Chicken or Vegetable Stock (If using Plain Water, add Seasoning to taste)
 

DIRECTIONS

1. Dice the vegetables and cilantro.

3. Distribute the quinoa evenly on top.

4. Place the end of the tray in the tube, and then add the liquid (this saves you from walking around with the liquid in the tray and having it spill out the holes in the end). The liquid should come to 1⁄4 inch of the brim.

5. The quinoa is cooked when all the water is absorbed and the grain is tender, about 45 minutes in full Sun.

6. Enjoy! Quinoa is versatile and makes a great addition to a more savory dish such as GoSun's Solaricious Salmon Filets.
