Five-in-one Quinoa

Today, when we came to class, Chef Cindy had the base for all of our recipes ready:

2.5 lbs of ground turkey
3 lb of brussel sprouts
1 lb onion
1 lb carrots
1 lb celery
Garlic
2 cups of quinoa
6 cups of broth

We all started out with the same ingredients.

We all started out with the same ingredients.

Then we divided into five teams, three or four per group. Each group had a choice to choose their own seasoning.

Here’s what we decided:

 We added cayenne and Ginger. We wanted sweet and spicy.

TEAM CRISTIAN, ALEXIAS, AND TAYLOR: We added cayenne and Ginger. We wanted sweet and spicy.

:We added basil, paprika, black pepper and salt.

TEAM JOHN, STEPHANIE AND KIM:We added basil, paprika, black pepper and salt.

 We  added curry, coriander seeds, and salt.

TEAM JESSICA, MARISELA, AND MONICA: We added curry, coriander seeds, and salt.

 We added ginger and cumin.

TEAM VANESSA, BLAKE, CYNDY AND EDDIE: We added ginger and cumin.

 We went Southeast Asian. We added curry, basil and salt.

TEAM DIANA AND CARCHELE: We went Southeast Asian. We added curry, basil and salt.

We learned that if you use different seasonings, you can make completely different dishes from the same ingredients. We all started out the same. But we ended up with five different quinoas.

Chef Cindy says it’s all in the seasonings!
