Quinoa Beef Picadillo

35 mins (prep 10, cooking 25)
20 ingredients
4-6 servings
From: "Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way" by Lorna Sass. "Picadillo, a zesty ground beef stew of Spanish orgin, was welcomed enthusiastically into the kitchens of many Caribbean and Latin American cooks during the Colonial period. Variations abound, but I favor the ones that achieve a balance of sweet and salty by including raisins and pimento-stuffed olives. Though picadillo is traditionally served over rice, by mixing high-protein quinoa right into the stew, you can go easy on the meat and still have a very satisfying meal."
