Spicy Chili Thai Quinoa

Well world. She’s jumped on that bandwagon. This girl just made quinoa. She is probably make it over and over and over again because it was JUST THAT GOOD. Yep, used a jarred sauce, not usually my thing, but it was just perfect with this! Aspiring to experiment with my own version SOON!

While quinoa is cooking, chop vegetables and heat pan.


Add olive oil, garlic and onions to pan. Sauté until translucent. (NOTE: Don’t burn your garlic while taking pictures like I did. FOCUS!=)) Once translucent, add water.



Add other vegetables, cooking until softened. There should be some water remaining in pan. If not, re-add 1/2 cup water. Pour in chili sauce.
