This meal, that graced our dinner table (some time ago now), highlights just how easy home cooking can be.
Using ‘whatever’ ingredients I had on hand…
(onions, garlic, quinoa, frozen peas, chilli powder, capsicum, carrot, oregano and cumin)
Along with a trio of beans…
We had ourselves quite the vegetarian chilli party!
I would give you a recipe, but there really is no need.
Just heat some olive oil in a large pot, add the onions, garlic and your vegetables. Throw in the other herbs, quinoa and water (using a 1:2 ratio), and some tinned tomatoes, simmer for half an hour, and you are done!
On this occasion we served the chilli alongside a green salad ..
Jazzed up with some cucumbers, raw cashews and dried cranberries.
The best part being that there are inevitably leftovers to enjoy for lunch or dinner the next day!
What about you? Are you a fan of one pot meals? I certainly am – especially when it means there are less dishes to do afterwards!
