Quinoa Recipe

2 cups of chicken stock (plus 1/2 c of water)
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 t curry powder
1 t tumeric
3 slices of thick bacon (pepper but any will do)
steamed broccoli florets (but any vegetable would really do)
1/4 c grated parm. or some other hard cheese

put the quinoa and stock into a 1 1/2 quart pan. Bring it to a boil and lower to a simmer and cover cooking for 12 minutes.

Chop the bacon into small pieces brown in a small frying pan until the grease flows. Add tumeric and curry powder to the pan. When the quinoa is done add it and the broccoli to the pan. stir this all together and check the quinoa for tenderness. You can add more water if it needs it (covering to steam for a while).

right before serving stir in your cheese.

I had the leftovers for lunch today and it was still good and still very filling.

Get the biggest quinoa you can find. Tiny little particles are not good. Fry the turmeric and curry power in the bacon fat for a while to let the flavor out.

I forgot to mention the big blob of butter I put on the quinoa after adding it to the pan. Butter is good. Bacon is good. But butter and bacon is better.
