Spicy Tomato Quinoa

This recipe is so tasty. I found it on this website
1 plum tomatoe (I used 3-it was still good)
1 cup on Quinoa
1-2 tsp of tomato paste
1 and 1/2 + 1/2 vegetable broth
1/2 red onion
3 garlic cloves
chipotle chili powder
Rinse the quinoa and let stand in water for 10 min to remove bitter taste
Chop tomato, onion and garlic cloves very thinly.
Boil the quinoa in 1 and 1/2 of vege broth and only add the 1/2 if it is not tender enough. The quinoa should absorb all the liquid.
fry the chopped tomatoe,onion, garlic in a bit of oil. salt is not recommended due to the tomatoe paste and broth.
When quinoa is done, turn off heat, add vege mix, tomatoe paste and chipotle powder and mix.
So tasty and spicy and healthy!
