Tomatoes originated in the Andes and were first used for food by the Aztecs. There are actually more than 7500 tomato varieties of tomatoes with crazy colours including orange, yellow, green, black, brown, purple, pink and white!
Tomatoes are a nutrient rich fruit. (Yes! Fruit! Let's not argue about it.) They're packed with vitamins A and C, calcium, potassium and are particularly good for lycopene (an antioxidant good for the heart). Cooked tomatoes are actually better for you than raw ones as more benefits are released.
The World Record for most tomatoes from a single plant is 32,194! It was between May 2005 and April 2006, at the Epcot Science Project, Disney World, Florida.
Quinoa is a funny little thing, with a suitably funny name (we pronounce it 'keen-wah' or, if feeling a bit posh, 'keen-waaaah'). It is not a cereal, but an edible seed. Gluten free, then, and high in protein, it is closely related to beetroot and spinach.
(And, er, tumbleweed, but best not to mention that.)
Quinoa has been farmed as a crop for nearly 4000 years.
It originated in the Peruvian Andes, keeping it in harmony
with the Latin American vibe of this recipe.
In fact, the Aztecs and the Incas both treated it as sacred.
We love the taste of quinoa, but birds
disagree. As they grow, the seeds have
a natural bitter coating (washed off after
harvesting) so there is no need to
protect the crop from hungry beaks.
Bad news if you're in the
Peruvian scarecrow industry.
Quinoa is also a good source of calcium, so a great ingredient for vegans and dairy free folks.
The United Nations, bless 'em, declared 2013 the 'International Year of Quinoa'! Woohoo! But for us, every year is a quinoa year. So let's raise up our OnePots to our little hero: quinoa.

Great job to create so many different tasty OnePots.

The cashews are the tastiest part, but other ingredients such as quinoa, coconut, and black beans make a nutrient-rich satisfying square meal, in a great serving size. You could add a side of greens, but just on its own is a perfect slow-releasing lunch.
