  1. Warm the vegetable oil in a large saucepan set over medium-high heat. Add the quinoa, onion, garlic, and green pepper, and cook while stirring for 5 to 10 minutes until the onion becomes soft and the quinoa is slightly toasted. Pour in the tomato sauce and water, then mix in the chili powder, garlic powder, and cumin. Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low, cover, and let it simmer for about 30 minutes until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is fully absorbed. Remember to stir the quinoa occasionally during cooking.


  • – For an extra kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes.
    – This dish pairs well with a fresh green salad or warm tortillas.
    – Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
