1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock or water
1/2 cup coconut milk (the co-op has handy powdered form–above the baking chocolate)
1/4 cup dry-roasted peanuts
1 Tablespoon olive or coconut oil
12 ounces thinly sliced pork tenderloin (or other cut)
2 leeks, white parts only, cleaned and sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 chili pepper, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black paper
1 can diced tomatoes with juice
1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
1 cup sliced green beans or other vegetable
1. In a blender, combine stock, coconut milk, and peanuts. Process until smooth. Set aside.
2. In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until the surface ripples. Add pork in batches, and cook until lightly browned, about 1 minute per side. Move to a bowl and set aside.
3. Put leeks in pan (an extra dash of oil if needed) and cook, stirring, a few minutes until softened. Add garlic, chili pepper, cumin, salt and black pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomatoes with juice and reserved peanut mixture and bring to a boil.
4. Stir in quinoa and vegetable and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Stir in pork and any accumulated juices. Cover and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
