– Olive oil – Onion – Red bell pepper – Quinoa – Chili powder – Cumin powder – Paprika


Carefully rinse quinoa using a fine mesh strainer. Drain well and set aside.

In a medium sized pot heat olive oil over medium high heat until hot and shimmering.

Add diced onion and bell pepper and saute until quite soft and starting to caramelize – about 4-5 minutes.

Add quinoa with spices, salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. Stir to coat quinoa with spices and lightly toast the quinoa.

Cook until quinoa is starting to appear more dry and sticking to the bottom of the pan a little bit.
