Quinoa con Queso (Quinoa with Cheese)

kept byDAPHNE
recipe bySimply Recipes

If you've never had quinoa, I urge you to try it. It's incredibly easy to make. If you like quinoa, but have never had it with milk or cheese, trust me, this is good. Here we are using queso fresco, a Mexican fresh farmers cheese, but you could also use Cotija, feta, or mozzarella. You can keep it simple with tomatoes, onions, garlic, and cheese, or dress it up with zucchini, roasted chiles, or potatoes.


1 cup quinoa, well rinsed
2 cups water
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
1 cup chopped onions
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 large fresh tomato, cored, chopped (about 1 1/4 cups)
1 roasted, peeled, seeded, and chopped large green chile, either Anaheim or Poblano (optional)*
2 teaspoons tomato paste
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano (or 1/2 teaspoon fresh, finely chopped)
1/4 pound (4 ounces) fresh farmer's cheese, or queso fresco, cut into small cubes
1 cup milk
Fresh basil, cilantro, or chives for garnish (optional)
