    tips & techniques
    Cook the quinoa
    1 Cook the quinoa

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the quinoa and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a large bowl.

    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the zucchini. Drain and rinse the beans. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater.

    3 Cook the zucchini & make the filling

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned; season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend (you will have extra).  Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to the bowl of cooked quinoa. Add the drained beans, vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high  until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the tomato paste and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook,  stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the sour cream until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Evenly top with the sauce and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
