Recipe of the Week

Beet this Quinoa

We’re still giddy from the energy and excitement of our recent Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop.  Fifteen of us from the community came together to share six inspired recipes from the creative wellspring that is Andi Jo at Traveling Recipes.  This one was one of our favorites.   Enjoy!

Adapted from Traveling Recipes


  • 2 beets-quartered, boiled & blended
  • ½ c apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups quinoa, rinsed
  • 7 ¾ cups water
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 sprig rosemary, de-stemmed & chopped
  • 1 ½ cups pecans
  • 1 tbs Outer Spice Spicy Blend
  • Pinch salt and cracked pepper


  1. Rinse quinoa and place in pot with OuterSpice and water. Bring to boil, cover, reduce to simmer and cook for 11~13 minutes.
  2. Place beets in small pot, cover with HOT water and boil until tender (10-15). Remove and drain. Place in blender with 3 tbs of water and blend. Set aside.
  3. While cooking, prep all veggies and the apple.  Place onions in a hot pan and caramelize. (To caramelize, heat pan on high, add onions and allow to brown while stirring. Once all are browned, add a splash of water, stir and repeat for 4 minutes.) Add carrots & garlic after 4 minutes and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. Turn off heat.
  4. When quinoa is ready add sauteed veggies, beet mix, vinegar, pecans and remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly until all is PINK! Season to taste.
  5. Place in serving bowl and make art! Be creative!!
