Quick and easy

I just wanted to make a very short post about my favourite recipe when I don't have that much time for creating anything special in the kitchen...
This is also appropriate if you are on a tiny budget and cannot afford any "extraordinary" food.

Red Quinoa with vegetables and feta (optional)
~ 2 persons


- 150g red quinoa
- onion, garlic
- olive oil
- sunflower seeds
- vegetables: you can choose any vegetables you like e.g. zucchini, broccoli, bell pepper, carrots and peas
- feta 
- salt, pepper, basil, rosemary, thyme


Cook the quinoa about 20 min. or according to the packing instructions. Cut your onion and garlic in small pieces. Then roast the onions, garlic and sunflower seeds in a non-stick pan together with olive oil. In the next step you add the vegetables and your quinoa with a bit of water so that it becomes not too dry. Let it roast a little bit and season it with salt, pepper, basil, rosemary and thyme (be careful with tyhme because it can affect the taste very much) and other spices you like e.g. cumin.
I topped it with feta and some white sesame.
