This one is genius- if I do say so myself… the flavors are yum and the whole things is super healthy!


I made this dish with the chicken curry and the whole meal was delicious!

  • 1 cup white quinoa
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Bring the coconut milk, lemon juice and salt to a boil in a small pan. Add the quinoa and cook according to package directions.

  • 2 tablespoons extra light olive oil
  • ½ cup raw peanuts, rough chop
  • 3 to 4 green onions, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 7 to 8 curry leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Salt to taste

Heat a wok like pan with the oil. Add the peanuts, green onions, cumin seeds, mustard seeds and curry leaves to the pan. Saute on medium heat for a minute or two, until the spices become aromatic. Add the frozen peas and the quinoa. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the lemon juice and salt. Taste for seasonings and serve.
