Chickpeas Quinoa and Spinach (DF,GF)

Cook the spinach by itself and add to the quinoa after the quinoa is cooked. 

This can be eaten "as is" ... or .... as a topping on potatoes ... or ... in a burrito.  I also like adding in chunks of sweet potatoes.

1 and 1/2 cups dry quinoa
2 cans chickpeas, with liquid 
2 tsp ground curry powder
2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp ground turmeric
3/4 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamon
1 and 1/2 cups water
1 16-oz package spinach, cooked

Place all ingredients (EXCEPT spinach) in a rice cooker and cook until done.  Stir in cooked spinach after the quinoa is cooked.

I really like the Rival 6-cup Rice Cooker w/Steamer.   It makes cooking rice SOOO easy.  I just put all the ingredients in the cooker .  So my rice dish is complete with spices and veggies when the rice is cooked.  The 6 cup isn't a big rice cooker, but it is plenty for 2 people.  

I said to the Lord, "You are my Lord.  Every good thing I have comes from you."
Psalm 16:2 (NCV)
