Quinua Amarilla [Yellow Quinoa]

Main Course Side Dish Peruvian Quinoa


Delicioso adobo


Rinse the quinoa well and dry it in a colander. Put it in a medium saucepan, add the water and cook for 20 minutes or until the quinoa starts to pop. Drain it. Put the oil and butter in a large pan. Add the onion, garlic, and bell pepper and cook until the onion is transparent, 5-7 minutes. dd the aji amarillo paste, the “Delicioso adobo,” the parsley (save a bit for garnish), and salt to taste. Add the drained quinoa and mix completely. Serve hot with the rest of the parsley sprinkled on top.
