Curried Chickpea with Quinoa
Quinoa is a healthier alternative to rice because it is rich in protein and low in bad cholesterol.
- 1 cup pre-rinsed quinoa
- 1 can chickpeas rinsed well
- 1 piece medium onion diced
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp curry powder
- 1/4 tsp salt You can also use Bragg seasoning blend or Mrs. Dash
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
Cook the quinoa. Check the cooking procedure at the back of the packaging. I normally cook 1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water using a rice cooker. Set aside.
Heat a cast iron skillet. Using 1 tbsp of olive oil, sauté onions until translucent, then add the minced garlic.
Add chickpea, and seasoning according to your taste. Stir occasionally for 10 minutes. Serve immediately on top of your quinoa.
