1/2 cup yellow onion, small dice

1/2 red bell pepper, small dice (about 1/2 cup)

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

2 cups vegetable broth or water

1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste

black pepper, to taste

1. Rinse quinoa under cool running water in a fine-mesh strainer and drain well.

2. Heat oil in a medium-sized sauce pan over medium heat. Add onion and pepper and saute until vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes.

4. Add quinoa and toss to coat with vegetables and spices. Cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
