slop recipe #204958: Tomato-Tahini-Quinoa slop [Feb. 1st, 2009|04:08 pm]
This is perfect as a snack. (Makes 2 servings.) You'll want to 1.5x or 2x the recipe to make a dinner out of it.

2 cloves garlic
1 large tomato, diced
1/3-1/2 cup tahini (the basic, pure sesame plain kind. they sell some at Smart & Final.)
1 lemon (any variety--I prefer Meyer)
olive oil
~2 cups cooked quinoa (protip: cook lots of quinoa at a time and keep it in the fridge to use whenever)
goat cheese
pine nuts (if you have/like them)
salt (to taste)

- heat some olive oil (~2-3 tbsp) in a pan
- crush/mince the garlic and throw it in, cook it for a lil bit.
- throw in the diced tomatoes
- cook down the tomatoes for a while, ~4 minutes
- pour in the tahini
- squeeze all the juice from the lemon into the sauce
- stir it up good, turn off the heat
- pour it over the quinoa
- each serving can be salted to taste
- add goat cheese to taste (about a 1-inch blob per serving) and pine nuts.
