  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add carrots, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, onion, and shallot. Cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  2. Pour vegetable broth and quinoa into the saucepan. Cover and simmer until quinoa is soft, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle dried basil on top.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute chicken broth for vegetarian broth if you like (though than the dish is no longer vegetarian).
  • If dish is still liquid after step 2, increase the heat and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes more.

Better than I expected, but I think it is missing some crunch and/or proteins. I would definitely serve as a side dish, not a main dish.
