Quinoa and Vegetable Stew


Quinoa and Vegetable Stew | Cooking Classy

I’ve shared a fair amount of quinoa soups but this Latin inspired Quinoa and Vegetable Stew is one of my new favorites! This hearty stew is packed with nutritious ingredients and the flavors are spot on delicious! The recipe comes from the new Cook’s Country One-Pan Wonders cookbook. I’ve been anticipating the release of this cookbook, you know how I love my one pan meals. Plus, I’ve long been a fan of America’s Test Kitchen (the creators of this cookbook) so for me it’s a match meant to be.

This book if full of recipes that will get you excited about cooking dinner again and I love that they test and re-test each recipe until they’ve perfected it. Plus, along the way they discover all the dos and dont’s and the hows and whys of each specific recipe. Because of this the book is brimming with helpful tips and tricks you’d likely never pick up on your own (like for instance adding baking soda to the flank steak to help if brown better in the sheet pan Beef Fajitas recipe or adding the more tender veggies to the center of the sheet pan since the edges cook hotter in the Roasted Chicken and Root Vegetables recipe). I started bookmarking recipes I wanted to try in this book but pretty soon I realized I wanted to try most of them so there was no need in bookmarking. Read more »
