In any case, here is one of my favourite one pot, vegan meals:
1/2 c Quinoa – rinsed well, but not cooked
2 TBSP Butter, ghee, or Earth Balance
3/4 c chopped onion
1 TBSP Minced fresh ginger
3/4 c Orange juice, apple juice or apple cider
2/3 c Water
2 TBSP Honey
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Ground coriander
1/4 tsp Ground cardamom
1/8 tsp Ground nutmeg
1 c Diced sweet potato
1 c Diced butternut squash
1 1/2 c Cooked beans (larger beans are nice)
1/4 c Chopped cranberries
Melt the butter or ghee in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add the onion and ginger, and cook, stirring, until onion is softened.
Stir in the fruit juice, water, honey, salt, coriander, cardamom, and nutmeg; bring to a boil.
Stir in the sweet potato and squash; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, 8 minutes.
Stir in the beans and quinoa, and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes.
Stir in the cranberries; simmer, covered, 5-10 minutes longer, or until quinoa is cooked.
