Quinoa; its whats for dinner


2 cups water
2cups milk
1/4 cup quinoa
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup potato, cubed
dash black pepper
2 tbs carrot, diced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 ½ cups corn (fresh, frozen or canned)  

Simmer quinoa, potato, carrot and onion until tender (about 15 minutes). Add corn. Bring back to boil and simmer another 5 minutes. Add milk. Bring just to a boil. Season to taste. Garnish with parsley and dab of butter. Serves 4-6. 

Or, if you are like me and completely space that you don't have corn, you can just substitute it for some mixed vegetables. Also, if you are like me, don't forget to put the 2 cups of milk in otherwise the quinoa will start to burn to the bottom of the pan. Oops.
