This is the winner of the Swanson Healthy Foods Recipe Contest for March 2009. As Swanson sponsors the contest many of the ingredients used are Swanson brand - but any brand will do to make the recipe. This is an excellent choice for those who really need a boost of protein and/or fiber, plus very rich in antioxidants and vitamins and minerals.

Quinoa's natural saponin coating must be removed before it's
ready for cooking. While the common method is to soak and wash
excessively with water, EDEN Quinoa is mechanically de-saponized. The
saponin is removed by rubbing. This superior method best preserves
flavor and nutrients. If using a brand other than Eden Foods quinoa,
remove the outer saponin coating or check the label for instructions
Bring 1-1/4 cups water to a boil and add in quinoa; simmer until all
water evaporates (about 12 to 15 minutes). Remove quinoa from heat and
cool in a large bowl. Quinoa should have a light and fluffy texture.
On medium heat, warm large skillet and coat with olive oil. Sauté
onions until slightly clear. Add in cabbage, broccoli, ginger root,
garlic, rosemary, thyme, and Himalayan crystal salt and sauté for
another 6 or 7 minutes to wilt the cabbage and lightly cook the
broccoli. Add peas & carrots during the last 2 minutes of cooking.
Mix flaxseed oil into quinoa and fold into the contents of the skillet. Adjust Himalayan crystal salt as desired.
Serve warm or chilled. Makes four servings.

Peter Klarman’s Inspiration:
This recipe was inspired by a friend’s suggestion to try this
wonderful little seed/grain. During a time that I was trying to focus
on digestive health, I developed this recipe in order to enjoy
something healthy and light. The texture, flavor, and nutritional value
make this dish easier to enjoy and digest. In addition, it provided
many essential nutrients and had a great positive impact on how I felt.
I call it “Magic Quinoa” because there are so many great flavors and
textures to enjoy in the recipe and you really don’t know which flavor
will be next. It’s quite satisfying and I like to prepare it often for
friends, family and different events. It has a wide appeal and caters
to the most “picky” of eaters. I really enjoy introducing this dish to
new people and they are always amazed by the flavor and the way they
feel afterward. To me, that is the most important thing about this
If not using already de-saponized quinoa, all you need to do is soak the quinoa in cold water for five minutes, and then rinse under running water until clear.
I hope you enjoy this.
