Quinoa Dump Stew

Once again I needed a meal to heat and eat through tech week before the show opened Saturday night.  I decided on another easy dish which I consider a stew because I chose to use less liquid than a soup and more than a quinoa salad.  This is a dish that tastes even better over time and I even added extra green beans I had later in the week.


  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1.25 lb chicken breast
  • 3-4 carrots, chopped
  • 1c quinoa
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes 14oz
  • 1 bag frozen cauliflower and broccoli
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped


Cook quinoa according to instructions and set aside.

Add carrots and sweet potato to large pot and soften 5 minutes.  Add canned tomatoes (mine were basil and garlic enhanced), frozen veggies, celery, and chicken to pot along with 2C water.  Be sure to add salt and pepper to taste!  Simmer 15 minutes before adding quinoa and removing chicken breasts to pull apart using two forks.
