Curried Quinoa

 After cooking that last batch of quinoa, I couldn’t wait to cook it again!  It was SO good!!!

This time I added one of my favorites… CURRY!!!  I LOVE curry!!!  Such a bold flavor and added with the right components creates a flavor that leaves you craving more!  This recipe has a bit more heat to it so if you don’t want it quite so spicy, you may want to go easy on the red pepper flakes.  I opted for red quinoa in this recipe but certainly any will work.

 Ingredients List:

2 cups chicken stock

1 cup red quinoa

1/4 cup chopped shallots

1/4 cup chopped green onions

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp curry powder

1/2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated

juice of  lime

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper

In a small/medium pot,  bring the chicken stock to a boil over high heat. Don’t cover at this point. Bring to a boil, add the quinoa, add lid, reduce heat to medium, and cook cook covered for 15 minutes.  Let sit covered for 5 – 7 minutes.  Fluff with a fork and add remaining ingredients.  Blend well and serve as a side with your favorite meat!
