Day 6 – Chili

September 17, 2012 at 8:47 pm (Food) (, )

It’s a work night for me, so Hubs and the spawn will be having some veggie soup for dinner. Nothing exciting and no recipe for that one, but I was in the mood for something heartier for lunch and came up with a new chili recipe.

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1/2 onion, finely diced
6 oz Boca meatless crumbles
1tsp cumin
1tsp chili powder
2 tsp minced garlic
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup black beans (either canned and rinsed, or dry beans simmered until soft)
6 oz can of tomato sauce

In one pot, combine quinoa and water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 15 minutes until water is absorbed.
While quinoa is cooking, sauté onion, Boca, garlic, cumin and chili powder in just a hint of oil. When onions begin to soften, add tomatoes, corn, beans, quinoa and tomato sauce. Simmer 15 minutes and enjoy!
