1 box red quinoa
3 tablespoons good olive oil
1 yellow pepper
1 large onion
3 cloves garlic, smashed through garlic press
8 ounce package mushrooms, washed and sliced
1 bunch broccoli rabe, washed and chopped
Start by preparing 1 box of Red quinoa according to package instructions. While the quinoa is cooking, heat up 2 tablespoons of the oil in a sauté pan, and sauté the onion and pepper together. Once the onion is translucent, add the broccoli rabe and the garlic, and sauté for just a minute or two. In the meantime, in a separate sauté pan, gently sauté the mushrooms in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. When the quinoa is finished steaming, transfer to a casserole, adding in the mushrooms and the onion-pepper-garlic broccoli rabe mixtures. This is ready to eat right away. If you need to wait a bit before serving, you can cover it and keep it warm in a low 250F degree oven for a half hour.
You can add in more garlic if you wish. This casserole really sticks to the ribs, and will please vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
