Quinoa and veggie bake - vegan. gluten free, and soy free
Quinoa is a complete protein, so this is a fantastic grain that you can add to almost anything. Soup, stew, stir-fry, rice dishes, salads, etc.
3 cups of cooked Quinoa - read the bag for directions. The cooking time and water quantity is the same as white rice
1 cup of spelt flour - or any gluten free flour (optional)
2 sweet potatoes
1/2 onion (optional)
3 tbsp of olive oil
Any spices you like. I used garlic powder and bit of sea salt.
1. Cook the Quinoa
2. While the Quinoa is cooking you can peel the veggies and give them a quick fry in the pan if desired. Or you can just mix them with the cooked Quinoa and spread in a baking pan.
These are the veggies shredded and mixed with the Quiona
Bake on high (425) for about 20-30 min unitl it is crispy. Stir every 10 min.
This is pretty filling. I suggest serving it with a salad.
