How To Make Vegetable Quinoa Biryani
For a healthier choice when it comes to your choice of grains, our biryani recipe uses quinoa as a substitute while still getting that unique Indian flavor.
Heat avocado oil in a pan. To this, add whole spices like bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, dry chili peppers, cloves and whole cumin seeds.
Once the spices start to sizzle, add the chopped veggies and garlic and ginger.
Add the remainder of the spices and water and mix well.
Cook for about 5 minutes, until veggies have softened and the flavors have incorporated.
In a separate pan, alternate with a bed of quinoa layered with the cooked veggies.
Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve.
