5-Minute Quinoa Chili

December 9, 2015

 

I love chili, especially on a cold winter night. But, when I'm super busy and don't have time to cook an entire pot of chili in my rice cooker, I use this recipe instead! It literally takes a few minutes. You just need a couple of key ingredients to really speed up the proccess.

 

Ingredients:

 

-1 package of Trader Joe's organic frozen quinoa

-1 cup low sodium organic kidney beans

-Bunch of kale

-Handful of mushrooms

-1.5 cups organic low sodium roasted tomatoes

-1 tsp. cumin

-1 tsp. smoked paprika

-Dash of garlic powder

-Dash of onion powder

-Nutritional Yeast flakes

 

Directions:

 

1. Empty the Trader Joe's frozen quinoa into a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, open your can of beasn and rinse.

2. In a pan, add 1 t tbsp. of water, the kale and mushrooms. Cook until the veggies are brown

3. Add in the defrosted quinoa, tomatoes, beans and spices.

4. Plate, sprinkle Nutritional Yeast flakes and enjoy!
