Green Fed

a blog about a girl who decided eating plants was the way to go

We’ve been eating this yummy chili for a few years now, and it’s never gotten old.  I always look forward to the weather cooling down a bit so I can start making it again.  It’s so satisfying and yummy, and even better the next day!

Quinoa Chili

2 cans beans (I like Kidney and Black), drained and rinsed well

2 tsp oil

1 medium onion, chopped finely

2 tsp salt

1 bell pepper, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp cumin

1 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp chili powder

2/3 cup quinoa, rinsed well

1 cup frozen corn

2 cups crushed tomatoes

1 cup water (I like a mixture of veggie broth and water)

Sautee onions over medium heat til tender.  Add spices and peppers; saute for 5-10 minutes.  Add quinoa and toast for a few minutes.  Add corn, tomatoes and water & simmer for 20 minutes over medium-low heat.  Add beans and simmer for another 15 minutes.

Serve with sliced avocado on top.  YUM!
