Quinoa Indian Curry


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!

  8. 1 Mango
  9. Cashew Nuts
  10. Fresh Cilantro
  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).
