Easy Curried Quinoa With Veggies

What you need: 

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 cup raisins
1 large tomato
2 carrots, grated
1 handful of sweet peas
1/2 green bell pepper
3 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons chili powder (preferably black/dark kind)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons cilantro
a good sprinkling of salt (or Braggs if you don't like sodium)

What you do: 

In a good sized pot, saute quinoa kernels in a little bit of olive oil until you can smell the goodness of it (about 2 mins), then pour in water, cover, and let boil about 15 mins until absorbed.
Cut up veggies while you wait. When water absorbed, fluff with a fork and add spices and all veggies except for shredded carrots and cilantro.
After stirring a good 30 secs on heat, remove, dish into bowls, and garnish with carrot and cilantro.
Viola! Deliciousness and simplicity. I hope people enjoy this recipe as much as I have ^^

I changed the peppers out for broccoli and cooked the veggies a little before I added them to the dish, but this was quite good, if more dry that what I usually expect with asian dishes.  Took about 45 minutes to an hour, which is longer than I at first expected.
