serves 3 as a main
You will need:
1 small sweet potato diced
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 large carrot diced
1 bell pepper diced
1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1/3 cup of quinoa grain
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1-2 teaspoons of tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 of a block of creamed coconut
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
medium green chilli finely chopped- optional
chopped pineapple- optional
to garnish- fresh parsley
Start by placing the chopped onion, garlic, oil and spices into a deep pan on a medium heat. Sweat the onions and garlic a little- do not burn them.
Add the vegetables, creamed coconut block and the tine of tomatoes. Use the empty can of tomatoes to fill with water and add to the saucepan. Bring to the boil then turn the heat down and simmer with a lid on for 5-10 minutes.
Stir the stew then add in the quinoa. Continue to simmer without the lid for 20 minutes and keep stiring every few minutes.
Turn the heat off and leave for 15 minutes (this will allow the stew to thicken and settle)
Make this, eat it and tell me what you think :)
