This is very slightly adapted from a recipe posted on the Fatfree Mailing List by Jan Bennicoff (JBennicoff@aol.com). Gabe Merkin's website and Lorna Sass have got something to do with it as well.
1. Wash the quinoa very well to remove the soapy-tasting substance in the outer coat. Clean the green beans and slice into 1-inch (2-cm) lengths. Chop the garlic finely.
2. Place quinoa and vegetable stock in a saucepan. Bring to boil, cover and simmer 5 minutes. Add green beans and tomatoes with their juice. Simmer 5 minutes more, covered, then add garlic and cook, covered, until beans and quinoa are soft, stirring occasionally.
3. Season to taste with basil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve hot or cold.
