1). Heat up oil in a medium pot. Sautee the chopped onions with a sprinkle of salt, add the carrots/ sweet potatoes and mix for about 5-8 minutes until nice and golden. Add turmeric, salt, and pepper and mix for 30-40 seconds. Add the washed quinoa, mix a little and add the boiling water.
2). Bring to a boil, and lower the heat to the lowest possible. Cook for 25-30 minutes. Let sit for another 10 minutes and serve.

Note: I like to sprout my quinoa. I soak it in lots of water overnight. It’s much healthier and tastier. In that case, I don’t put 2 cups of water for each cup of quinoa. I do one and a quarter or one and a half. Depending on how wet you like the consistency.
