What time is it?! It’s QUINOA time!!

Quinoa, a grain crop grown primarily for its edible seeds, has become increasingly popular. Recommended for its nutritional value and even been called, yes, a superfood. It is high in protein, calcium, fiber, magnesium and iron. And, since it is actually a seed and not a true cereal, it is gluten-free.

This quinoa recipe is packed with Indian flavors, containing ingredients such as garlic, garam masala, coconut milk and cilantro. A quick and easy Indian inspired dish that will make your belly happy!

  9. Cashew Nuts

Instructions
  1. Finely chop the spring onion, red bell pepper, mango and cilantro.
  2. Carefully rinse the quinoa (Very important, because quinoa seeds have a very bitter coating that must be soaked off before preparing).

  4. While the quinoa is cooking, in a frying pan heat oil and stir-fry the spring onion, red bell pepper and mango.
