As always, these recipes are for a single serving…but usually quite a generous one at that!!

It will take you about 30/35 minutes to prepare this.

Ingredients:

2 tsp olive oil
half an onion
clove or 2 of garlic
25 grams (1 oz) quinoa
3 floz (90 ml) vegetable stock
quarter teaspoon of curry powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt & black pepper to taste
1.5 oz or 45 grams of tinned sweetcorn
200 gram tin/jar of red beans, drained and rinsed well.

What to do:

Heat the oil over a medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes.
Mix the Quinoa into the pan and cover with the stock. Stir well.
Add curry powder, cayenne pepper and salt & pepper.
Bring to the boil, then cover the pan, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Stir in the sweetcorn and mix in the beans.
Warm through…and enjoy!!

Tip:

Try black beans or kidney beans instead of red beans. Or substitute the curry powder for ground cumin. Go wild! This recipe lends itself beautifully to improvisation. 😉
