Quinoa Vegetarian Chili

DSC_5141

We love Chili in our house. It is tasty, easy to make, healthy and substantial. Being crunched for time last week, it was Chili time again. Usually, when we eat Chili, it is with some kind of bread on the side. This time though, I decided to do meal-in-a-bowl and decided to throw in a few fistfuls of quinoa right at the end and let it cook in the Chili. Quinoa, for those of you who don’t know is a grain from South America that is considered by many to be a super-food. It contains heart-healthy fats and anti-oxidants and is considered a nutrient-rich grain.

It tasted great and made for a complete meal in a bowl. Here is the Chili recipe (click here). You can experiment with the amount of quinoa you want to add. You may have to add a little extra water to make sure the quinoa cooks properly and the Chili has the right consistency with the added quinoa.
