Ingredients

1 large red onion, peeled& finely diced
3 fat fresh cloves of garlic, peeled& finely diced
550 grams of peeled butternut squash, peeled, cut into smaller cubes, each about 2 cm x 1 cm
1 tablespoon red chili powder, nearly level, just a little bit less!
100 grams of quinoa, soaked in cold water for 10 minutes& well drai
2 x 400 good quality cans of chopped tomatoes
3/4 empty tomato can filled with water
2 x 400 of red kidney beans, well rinsed& well leaked
coriander leaves: (cilantro) a small handful, washe
a fruity EVOO
* to serve: Sheep's Greek style yoghurt or normal Greek yogh

Preparation

1
Take a large Creuset pan with fitting lid or another big stewing pot with fitting lid. Place this pot on medium heat and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the fruity EVOO. Heat up. When hot & sizzling, add the chopped onion & garlic & fry until soft. Stir frequently.
2
Add the chili powder, stir the chili round & fry for about 1 minute to give its aroma's off. Add a bit more of the EVOO is necessary. Then add the chopped butternut squash, quinoa, 2 tins of chopped tomatoes & 3/4 empty can of tomatoes filled with water. Stir everything well round & cook until it has thickened a lot, the quinoa & the veggies are cooked through. Cook with the lid 3/4 on & it will take about 20 to 25 minutes. From time to time, stir everyhting well round to prevent sticking or turn the heat a bit down. Take the lid off if you want to.
3
When the stew is nearly ready, in the last 10 minutes or so, add the 2 cans of beans. Stir well through the stew. Heat up the beans. When your stew is ready, taste. It has to taste fabulous!

Just before serving, add the roughly chopped coriander leaves ( cilantro ).
