- 130g organic quinoa
- 1 cup organic shallot, finely diced
- 2 cups okra sliced julienne
- 1 cup organic eggplant thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup capsicum, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts
- 2 tablespoons organic sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons organic tahini, unhulled
- 2 tablespoons organic, cold pressed olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/2 teaspoon ground (sweet) paprika
- Add 1.5 cups of water, some olive oil and a pinch of salt into a stainless steel pan and add the quinoa and bring to the boil.
- When the quinoa water has come to the boil, bring it to a simmer for 10 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside, covered until ready to serve.
- Add the olive oil and shallots to a stainless steel or cast iron pan and cook until slightly transluscent.
- Add the okra, eggplant and the capsicum and cook for a further 5-6 minutes. Add some water if necessary, a little at a time and stir constantly (the eggplant will need it). Add a small pinch of salt to taste until the eggplant and okra are almost cooked.
- Add the capsicum and spices (ground cumin, ground coriander, ground sweet paprika) and cook 1-2 minutes.
- Serve the cooked vegetables on top of the quinoa. Add some of the pine nuts and sesame seeds and drizzle with the tahini.
