How To Make
  1. Soak the quinoa grains for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Change the water and cook it till soft and fluffy, about 15 minutes.
  3. In a large pan or wok, fry the onion in coconut oil till translucent.
  4. Add chopped mushrooms and cook till onions and mushrooms turn brown.
  5. Add carrots and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  6. Add yellow squash and roasted peppers (for quick roasting, hold the pepper in kitchen tongs over a stove fire and keep turning the pepper till all sides are soft and the skin is blackened) and cook for another few minutes.
  7. In a separate small pan, roast cumin seeds in a dry pan over low to medium heat, shaking the pan frequently to roll the seeds around until they are aromatic and a darker shade.
  8. Once quinoa is cooked, combine it with the vegetables and cumin and cook through another minute.
  9. Serve warm.
