Ingredients
  

  • 1 large carrot chopped finely
  • 5 cremini mushroom caps chopped finely (or as you desire)
  • 5-6 cups of vegetable broth or just water
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic minced/pressed
  • 1 big onion well-chopped.
  • ¼ cup coriander chopped finely
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ cup of rinsed quinoa. Alternately you can use lentils to replace this ingredient.
  • Red chili flakes pepper, salt, sugar to taste
  • 1 cup kale chopped finely. You can as well chance kale to spinach or Swiss chard. (Optional)

Instructions
 

  • Prepare a medium-sized pan. Then, heat the olive oil and sauté the garlic, onion, red chili flakes, and turmeric powder. Add a pinch of salt to fasten the cooking of onion.
  • Once the onion turns transparent and the garlic turns brownish, add the main ingredients: carrots and mushrooms. Include coriander and sauté these mix for several minutes.
  • Add in the quinoa (or lentils) and pour in the vegetable broth. Add more salt, pepper, and sugar if needed. Proceed with cooking it for additional 15-20 minutes or until the quinoa is well-cooked. If choosing lentils, you may need longer time of cooking, which is around 35-40 minutes. You may add more broth or water if the level is low yet it is not the time to turn off the heat.
  • Check the quinoa for whether it is well-cooked or not. Once you’re sure the quinoa is well-cooked, turn off the stove.
  • If you opt to have the kale, you can now stir it in. Although the stove has been turned off, the heat will still be enough to wilt the greens.
