Coconut Curry Quinoa

When my roommate came back from visiting family for the weekend she brought a 3 lb bag of quinoa (for those of you who don't know what Quinoa is click this link) As such it was time to make a quinoa dish...

Coconut Curry Quinoa

(sorry the end product didn't photograph very well so this is what the sauce looks like)
1 cup uncooked quinoa
an assortment of chopped vegetables (we follow the rainbow, red = 1 large tomato, orange = carrots, yellow = yellow pepper, green = spinach and zucchini)
3 Tbsp coconut oil (you can use other oil if you want)
1 small onion
1 tsp cumin
3 Tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp flour
2 cups vegetable stock
1 cup coconut milk

1) Heat coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat until melted. 
2) Add chopped garlic and onion and cook for 4-5 minutes. 
3) Add cumin, sea salt, and curry spices and stir well. Add flour very slowly.  Add the vegetable stock very slowly to avoid clumping. 
4) Stir in coconut milk and finally add the vegetables. 
5) Simmer on low for about 30 minutes stirring every now and then. 
6) While the sauce is simmering, cook the Quinoa according to the package directions. 
7) serve the curry over the quinoa.

  1. THIS IS SO GOOD! My dad heard about it and wants me to make it. Its fool proof and will impress any guest :)

  2. ALL of your meals look fantastic! :D. I'm trying to be done with meat, well, most kinds ;), once and for all. I will definitely try to use these recipes as often as I can! In the past I found it challenging to do so. Revolving cooking around a piece of meat just seemed so simple but so is this blog! Thanks! -Garth
