Local Roasted Tomato and White Bean Quinoa Stew
What you need:
1 onion diced
1 green pepper diced
2 garlic cloves minced
8 medium tomatoes diced (I used all different types and colors of tomatoes because I happen to have so many right now)
1 can of organic white beans
1 cup of Quinoa
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium sauce pan and add in onions. Stir until translucent. Add in garlic, tomatoes and green pepper and continue stirring. Add in quinoa and water according to package (you can use 1/3 less water as the tomatoes have a lot of water.) Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and slowly cook for about 30 to 40 minutes. Add in drained white beans a few minutes before serving.
