VEGETABLE QUINOA BAKE: Quinoa, the ancient South American grain with a nutty flavor and chewy texture, teams up with a medley of vegetables for this casserole. This makes an impressive centerpiece for holiday dinners or other festive occasions. Jay prepared this dish on "Alive and Wellness," a cable television show, and it was a big hit.
PREHEAT oven to 400F/200C. In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onion, mushrooms, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, if desired, zucchini, and garlic and saute for about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the water, quinoa, squash, carrots kale, and seasonings and bring to a boil.
Transfer the mixture to a 9" X 13" casserole dish and cover. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until all of the liquid is absorbed.
Remove from the oven and fluff with a fork. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings. SOURCES >The Global Vegetarian (1995) Jay Solomom; (Contemporary Books 0809234297). >phannema@... MC-PER SERVING: 178CAL, 3.9G fat (18⅘% cff). 31.6g carbs >Eat-lf Archive January 1998.
