Recipe: Quinoa and Vegetable Stew

This recipe is inspired by traditional Peruvian Quinoa Stew but with more easily accessible ingredients. A crusty piece of bread along with it really makes it sing. Peas, cheese and quinoa are all good non-meat protein sources. Don’t omit the garnish! It’s an essential part of the flavor, especially the cheese and avocado. Feel free to add some fiery peppers to the sauté as well if you like spice. This is great as a leftover, too. Enjoy!!
