Thai Fried Quinoa

Megan shared this recipe with me....she definitely knows the kind of things I like to try.
  • 1 c. dry quinoa
  • 1 c. coconut milk
  • 1 c. vegetable broth
  • 1/3 c. chopped green onions
  • 1 T. minced ginger
  • 2 t. minced garlic
  • 1 c. frozen peas
  • 1 c. pineapple
  • 1/4 c. cilantro, chopped
  • 1 T. lime juice
  • 2 T. reduced sodium soy sauce
  • Optional garnishes: lime wedges, peanuts, cilantro, cherry tomatoes

· Place a saucepan over medium-high heat and add quinoa, stirring every minute or so until quinoa is toasted.

· Combine coconut milk and vegetable broth and add to quinoa.

· Bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.

· Meanwhile, coat a large skillet with cooking spray or a light spritz of oil and place over medium-high heat. Add green onion, ginger and garlic and sauté for a minute or two.

· Add peas, pineapple and cilantro and sauté for an additional minute.

· Add quinoa to the skillet and cook until starting to slightly brown and crisp.

· Finish with lime juice and soy sauce.

· Serve and garnish.
